Pasco Property Appraiser Provides Way to See Effect of Proposed Tax Change
Voters in the Nov. 6 election will be asked to decide if the the homestead exemption on property taxes should be increased. Pasco property owners can see for themselves how the proposal would affect them.
PASCO COUNTY – When voters go to the polls in November, they’ll be doing more than electing candidates for public office.
They’ll be deciding whether to increase the amount of the homestead exemption for property owners.
In an effort to provide constituent voters the information they need about the Third Homestead Exemption before going to the polls, Pasco Property Appraiser Gary Joiner has put an estimator of tax savings on the official website at pascopa.com.
Specifically, the question on the Nov. 6 ballot will ask voters if they want to amend the State Constitution to increase the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed valuation of homesteaded property greater than $100,000 and up to $125,000 for all levies other than school district levies. If it passes, the amendment would take effect Jan.1, 2019.
A “Yes” vote will support the measure while a “No” vote will oppose the measure. The Estimator Tool provides the tax savings on a parcel level so that homeowners who have a homestead exemption can more easily understand the amount of tax savings that they may receive.
A link to the Estimator Tool will appear at the top of each parcel information page. Also, a slider on the Pasco County Property Appraiser’s homepage will help homeowners on locating this information. The tool itself is the result of an effort by property appraisers statewide to provide accurate estimates and to codify the implementation of the amendment, if the measure passes in November.
