If you missed the March 3rd deadline for filing a Homestead Exemption application don’t panic. Take a breath of fresh air and make plans to take a field trip to the Exemptions Division of the Miami-Dade Property Appraiser’s Office located at:
Stephen P Clark Center (Government Center)
111 NW 1 Street, Suite 710 (7th Floor)
Miami, FL 33128
Late applications for Homestead and other property tax exemptions can be filed in person through mid-September. Applicants must also file a petition with the Value Adjustment Board ($15.00 fee). The property owner must have all the required documents when filing.

While you’re downtown, take some time to visit the Miami Art Museum (yes, we do have one) and check out Wilfredo Lam‘s first large-scale solo exhibition in South Florida, Wilfredo Lam in North America. It’s embarrassing to think that it took this long for a local cultural institution to take a chance to display the works of (arguably) the greatest Cuban painter to ever live.
Is the local Cuban community finally growing up? Or is it just growing old?
