Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh is helping property owners file for their Homestead Exemption through February 27th.

Over the past month, Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh has been operating satellite offices in order to provide advice and help to property owners seeking to file Homestead Exemptions.
Instead of hosting these satellite offices out of private office or rental spaces like past Property Appraisers, Singh has partnered with fellow governmental agencies and public departments to utilize their space at no extra cost.
Residents can save up to $50,000 by properly filing their Homestead exemption on their primary residence, according to an informational video from the Property Appraiser’s office. Over 20,000 residents utilized this exemption last year.
Orange County Property Appraiser, Rick Singh, said that this is a way for the office to reach and service more taxpayers in the county.
“Prior to my time in office, satellite offices were held in malls. When I was elected, we deemed this method to be costly and ineffective. So I decided to partner with the community and hold them in public spaces at no cost to the taxpayer,” Singh said. “Since 2013, we’ve returned more than $750 million to the tax base through efficient business practices and strong investigative work. This office continues to work for the taxpayers of Orange County,” he continued.
