Florida Amendment 2: Veterans Property Tax
Take a closer look at the proposed amendment to the Florida Constitution before you vote.
Amendment 2: Veterans Disabled to Combat Injury; Homestead Property Tax Discount
This proposed amendment would give disabled veterans who did not live in Florida when they entered the military a break on their property taxes. It essentially extends the homestead property tax discounts to include them.
This is another amendment that faces strong opposition. The League of Women Voters of Florida says this amendment could cost local governments as much as $15 million over the first three years of its implementation.
Supporters argue the amendment would help veterans and might assist in boosting the housing market.
