WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NOW THAT AMENDMENT 1 HAS PASSED

BY

Phillip L. Pelletier

Hendry County Property Appraiser

 

Now that Amendment One has passed, my office is here to continue to serve you. The following are some key points you will need to know.

 

  1. Additional Homestead Exemption - If you currently have homestead exemption on your primary residence no action is required by you. The additional $25,000 homestead exemption will apply to all ad valorem tax levies EXCEPT SCHOOL DISTRICT LEVIES.

 

  1. Homestead Exemption Portability - If you relinquished your previous Florida homesteaded property in 2007 and are applying for homestead or have already applied for homestead in 2008 you may be eligible for the new portability exemption. Please contact our office and my staff will provide you with proper documents to verify your eligibility and complete your application.

 

  1. Tangible Personal Property Exemption Under this revision the first $25,000 in value of the furniture, fixtures and equipment currently being taxed will be exempt from taxation; excluding Mobile Homes requiring an annual DMV Decal.

  2. - Businesses with tangible personal property assets will be required to file an initial return to qualify.

 

  1. Non-Homestead Property - This property will be eligible for a 10% assessment

  2. - Cap effective January 1, 2009. No application is necessary in 2008. The Cap will be available to those who apply by March 1, 2009.
