Any real estate used and owned as a homestead by an ex-servicemember who has been honorably discharged with a service-connected total disability, and who has a certificate from the United States Government or United States Department of Veterans Affairs or its predecessor, or its successors, certifying that the ex-servicemember is receiving or has received special pecuniary assistance due to disability requiring specially adapted housing and required to use a wheelchair for his or her transportation is exempt from taxation.
A surviving spouse that held title to the homestead property, with the veteran as an estate by the entirety, shall continue to benefit from the exemption provided the spouse continues to reside on the property or until he or she remarries, sells or otherwise disposes of the property.
The following documentation is required, along with the in-office application:
An applicant may apply for the exemption before receiving the necessary documentation. Upon receipt of the documentation, the exemption shall be granted as of the date of the original application, and the excess taxes paid during the 4-year period of limitation set forth in Florida Statute 197.182(1)(e), shall be refunded.
