Derek Jeter’s multimillion-dollar mansion on Davis Islands in Tampa.

TAMPA — Derek Jeter may soon call Florida his official home.

The New York Yankees shortstop filed a homestead exemption on his Davis Islands mansion about six weeks ago, said Warren Weathers, Hillsborough's chief deputy property appraiser.

The exemption will lower the home's appraised taxable value by $50,000 and also means he's declaring the mansion worth nearly $13 million his legal residence.

The application process — which includes confirming that Jeter hasn't filed for an exemption elsewhere — will take about six to eight weeks, Weathers said.

The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom, 30,000-square-foot mansion is located at 58 Bahama Circle.
