What is Florida's Amendment 1?

On November 6, voters will decide on a proposed statewide amendment that would provide an additional homestead property tax exemption for certain primary residences on Assessed Value from $100,000-$125,000. The amendment would take effect Jan 1, 2019.

How Does Amendment  1 Impact Our Community?

The Property Appraiser’s database, which categorizes all property in Pinellas County, determined that 2 in 3 homes would not qualify for additional exemption on property taxes, with one-third of homes estimated to save. Businesses and renters do not qualify.

According to the Property Appraiser's office, the fiscal impact of Amendment 1 is a $42.5 million projected loss in government funds for essential public services such as fire, EMS, police libraries, parks and more.
