This exemption provides a discount from the amount of ad valorem tax on the homestead of a partially or totally permanently disabled veteran who is 65 or older whose disability was combat-related, and who was honorably discharged. The percentage of tax discount will be based on the percentage of combat related disability the veteran has been granted by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

In 2012, the voters approved a Constitutional Amendment that expands the availability of the property discount on the homesteads of veterans, age 65 and over, who became disabled as the result of a combat injury to include those who were not Florida residents when they entered the military.

Also, widows of veterans who were disabled with a service connected disability of 10% or more qualify for this exemption.
