What's the Florida Homestead Exemption and who can benefit from it?

The first $25,000 applies to all property taxes, including school district taxes. The additional exemption up to $25,000, applies to the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000 and only to non-school taxes". To learn more about the Florida Homestead Exemption, visit the Florida Department of Revenue by clicking here
