Hernando County offers new tax exemption for some service members

COUNTYWIDE

New tax exemption available to military

Hernando County Property Appraiser Alvin Mazourek has announced an additional property tax exemption that is now available for certain military service members.

The new exemption is available to service members who were deployed during the preceding calendar year on active duty outside the continental United States, Alaska, or Hawaii in support of:

• Operation Enduring Freedom

• Operation Iraqi Freedom

• Operation New Dawn.

Proof of deployment, including dates, from the Veteran's Administration or military branch is required.

Service members who currently receive a homestead exemption on their primary residences may get this added exemption.

This is not a fixed amount like the homestead exemption. Rather, it is based on the number of days the service member was deployed. For example, if the service member was deployed half the year, the exemption would be 50 percent of the home's taxable value.

The application is available on the property appraiser's website at hernandocounty.us/pa; or stop by one of the offices at the Hernando County Government Center, Room 463, 20 N Main St., Brooksville; or at the Westside Government Center at 7525 Forest Oaks Blvd., Spring Hill.

For information, call (352) 754-4190.
