Florida voters on Nov. 7, 2006, approved two Homestead Exemption amendments to the Florida Constitution.

To help determine whether they affect you, I am pleased to provide you with a summary of the issues.

Combat-disabled Senior Veteran Tax Discount

Veterans who meet the following specific criteria and have a qualified Homestead Exemption, may be eligible for an ad valorem tax discount.The discount will be your percentage of disability applied against the ad valorem taxes owed.

Age 65 or older

Disabled in combat

Resident of Florida at the time you entered military service

Honorably discharged

For more information, please contact your local county property appraiser's office which can be found here: http://www.netside.net/~c3i/tax.htm


Seniors Exemption Increase from $25,000 t o $50,000

Qualified low-income seniors currently receive a $25,000 County tax Homestead Exemption and some city tax discounts. With this new amendment, taxing authorities such as the County Commission, can adopt a higher amount, up to $50,000. A resolution is required before it would take effect in Palm Beach County or municipality.

You may wish to contact the county commission or your city council for more information.
