IMPORTANT HOMESTEAD TAX EXEMPTION NOTICE
On May 10, 2012, Act 2012-313, became law, which amends the Homestead Exemption laws. This new law changes the income requirement for exemption, and requires verification of all exemptions for age 65 and older, or RETIRED because of permanent and total disability. Note that you must be retired due to disability to qualify.
Previously, those 65 and older have been required to have an income of $ 7,500 or less to be totally exempt. Homeowners age 65 or older may now have an annual net taxable income of up to $12,000, as shown on the owner and spouse’s latest Federal Income Tax Return, to qualify for total exemption. For those who do not qualify for total exemption, a partial exemption is given if their adjusted gross income on their state tax return is less than $12,000.
