FIRST RESPONDERS EXEMPTION

Constitutional Amendment 3 was approved by the voters in the November 8, 2016 general election.  This amendment created changes to section 6, article VII, and article XII, of the Florida Constitution to allow the Legislature to provide ad valorem tax relief on homestead property for a first responder who is totally and permanently disabled because of an injury sustained in the line of duty.  Although this amendment takes effect January 1, 2017, it it not self-executing and requires implementing legislation by the Florida Legislature.  The Florida Legislative session begins in March 2017.

Once legislation is implemented, we will update this page with the necessary information.  If you would like to be notified of information regarding the first responders exemption, please email katie@scpafl.org to be added to the list.
