Troops can get property tax exemption

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

The 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 Veterans Administration or military branch is required.

Service members who currently receive a homestead exemption on their primary residence may receive this additional exemption. The new exemption 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, the Hernando County Government Center, Room 463, 20 N Main St., Brooksville, or the Westside Government Center at 7525 Forest Oaks Blvd., Spring Hill. For information, call (352) 754-4190.

    ARLINGTON, Texas — After battling through a 61/2-hour affair Sunday in Minnesota that was the second-longest game in franchise history, Rays officials were quick to decide that even though Erasmo Ramirez had just worked the 15th and final inning, they would stick with him to start Monday's game in Texas.
