Florida Property Tax Reform

By
Real Estate Agent with Homestars Realty

Whether you voted for it or not, everyone should take advantage of the tax reform!

While the increase in the homestead exemption will be automatic, you must take some action to gain the advantages of the portability. You will need to file an application with your county property appraiser's office. To see what kind of savings benefits you will get, go to www.tampabay.com/taxes and use the portability calculator there.

There are still many questions regarding the amendment. To get answers to the more common ones, read the article in the St. Pete Times. Click the following link:

Nicole, Welcome to Active Rain and congratulations on your first blog.  You find this site is a lot more than a recruiting tool.  It is a great place to learn about the industry.  I suggest you read and comment on 10 blogs per day to get the most out of AR.  Otherwise, you will not benefit from the community.
