Homestead exemption falls short of promise
The idea sounds simple, significant - and it's Gov. Charlie Crist's No. 1 weapon in selling the property tax cut plan that goes before voters Jan. 29.
The poll-tested concept has rolled off his tongue in public appearances from Miami to Tallahassee. He used it again Monday in Broward County to promote passage of Amendment 1.
But to say the measure would double the current $25,000 homestead exemption is misleading. (Politifact story here.)
