    I don't think FL has much of a real estate tax benefit /exemption for Para's ...could be wrong. I wonder if they are only state that has property tax/exemption for quads great perk if you qualify

    Disability Exemptions
    Residents who have various types of disabilities are eligible for exemptions ranging from $500 to complete relief from property taxes. These exemptions include the following:

    Disability exemptions of $500 are available to Florida homeowners who are totally and permanently disabled.
    Blindness exemptions of $500 are available to legally blind residents.
    Quadriplegic exemptions are available on real estate owned and used as a homestead by a quadriplegic. Such homesteads are completely exempt from property tax.
    Total disability exemptions are available on real estate owned and used as a homestead by a totally and permanently disabled person who must use a wheelchair or is legally blind and meets income requirements. This exemption provides complete relief from property taxes.

    Click the income limitations link in one of the posts above. And it seems they count everyone in that house when figuring income. Big question is why the counties are asking for and counting SS income towards the limitation, and the tax exemption statute defines income as specifically exclusive of SS income. I'm missing something there it seems...

    Unfortunately I don't know the answers to your questions. Being a quad all that is needed is a letter from my Dr.

    Ya I am just speculating at this point. Probably have to wait until my wife retires to even consider qualifying. I am always looking for benefits to get out of the cold!
