    Are You Getting All Your Florida Property Tax Breaks?
    Make sure you're not paying more in Florida property taxes than you have to.

    • Disabled veteran. In addition to the usual homestead exemptions, you may qualify for a tax discount if you?re 65 years old or older, and have a disability that?s wholly or partly due to combat.
    • Other disabled people. If you?re blind, or totally and permanently disabled, you qualify for a $500 exemption from Florida property taxes.

    Property Tax Exemptions

    Homestead Exemptions are available on primary residences in Florida. These exemptions can be available up to $50,000. However, only the first $25,000 of this exemption applies to all taxes. The remaining $25,000 only applies to non-school taxes.
    Widow(er) Exemptions of $500 are available to widows and widowers who have not remarried. If you were divorced at the time of your ex-spouse?€™s death, you do not qualify for this exemption.
    Senior Citizen Exemptions are available in http://dor.myflorida.com/dor/propert...nt/dr501sc.pdfcertain counties and cities only. They are valued up to $50,000 for residents 65 years old and older who have gross income below $20,000 in 2001 dollars, adjusted for inflation. This exemption is in addition to the Homestead Exemption.
    Blind Person Exemptions of $500 are available to Floridians who are legally blind.
    Total and Permanent Disability Exemptions are available for homeowners who have a total and permanent disability. Quadriplegics who use their property as a homestead are exempt from all property taxes. Others who must use a wheelchair for mobility or are legally blind and have a gross income below $14,500 in 1991 dollars, adjusted for inflation, can be exempt from all property taxes as well.
    Veterans Exemptions exist in a number of different forms.

    • A veteran documented as disabled by 10% or more in war or service-connected events can earn an additional exemption of $5,000 on any owned property.
    • An honorably discharged veteran who is totally and permanently disabled or requires a wheelchair for mobility due to their service can be exempt from all property taxes. In some circumstances, this benefit can be transferred to a surviving spouse.
    • An honorably discharged and disabled veteran who is 65 or older who was a Florida resident when they entered military service may be eligible for an additional exemption. The disability must be permanent and must have been acquired as a result of the military service. The property tax will be discounted based on the percent of the disability.
    • Members of the military deployed during the last calendar year can receive exemptions based on the percent of time during the year they were deployed.
