A message from your Property Appraiser-


Welcome to the Manatee County Property Appraiser’s website. As your Property Appraiser, I am personally dedicated to running this office in the most cost-effective manner possible without sacrificing our commitment to excellence in property valuation while providing quality and professional customer service to the taxpayers of Manatee County.

As the exemption filing deadline of March 1, 2019 is fast approaching, I encourage you to utilize our online filing system to file for your Homestead Exemption.  From this homepage, simply click on the icon titled “File for Homestead Online” and you will be taken through a step-by-step filing process.  We trust you will find this method of filing for homestead exemption a bit less painful than driving to see us.  While our staff is always available for person-to-person assistance, we hope that making the filing process available to you electronically will ease some of the frustration you may experience during this busy season.

Please feel free to contact our knowledgeable staff should you have any questions about the process.


Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead contact the office by phone or in writing.
