Voter Guide on 2018 Florida Amendment One and Two: homestead exemptions, property taxes

Ahead of the general election, former U.S. Senate candidate Alex Snitker broke down the Florida amendments on the 2018 ballot for Florida Daily. Snitker then spoke with Dispatch Radio about the amendments.

UPDATE: All of the Florida Amendments passed except for Amendment One – more HERE

Check out the full audio below.

Here’s his remarks on Amendment One and Two:

Amendment 1 (Property Tax Cut)-YES

Placed on the ballot by the Florida Legislature.

Amendment 1 will give homesteaded home owners a third $25,000 exemption on a home’s assessed value between $100,000 and $125,000. I always support taxpayers keeping more of their hard-earned money.

Amendment 2 (Property Tax Cut)-YES

Placed on the ballot by the Florida Legislature.

Amendment 2 will make permanent a cap on non-homesteaded increases in assessed value at no more than 10 percent a year. Before 2008, non-homesteaded property, such as second homes and commercial property were seeing 30 percent to 80 percent hikes in their assessed value. Amendment 2 will offer some protection from run away property taxes.
