Meet Dorothy Jacks Our Property Appraiser...Palm Beach Loves Real Estate
I Love Palm Beach
Our property appraiser's office is a wealth of information for our residents. Dorothy Jacks isour current appraiser and her efforts to be fair to homeowners keeps our residents happy and promotes homeownership in our county! But the funds collected are important to our community and fund our county programs along with our firefighters and police officers. So her job is quite important and a fine line balance must take place.Dorothy wants to bring awareness to two amendments on the current ballot that are real estate related and should be supported. Amendment 5 :Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution, effective date January 1, 2021, to increase, from 2 years to 3 years, the period of time during which accrued Save-Our-Homes benefits may be transferred from a prior homestead to a new homestead.This will extend the portability from 2 years to 3 years which is a more realistic time frame and encourages families that are upsizing or downsizing to more expensive homes to make the move and save on their property taxes.Amendment 6: Ad Valorem Tax Discount for Spouses of Certain Deceased Veterans who had Permanent, Combat-related DisabilitiesThis would amend Section 6 of Article 7 of the Florida Constitution to allow a homestead property tax discount to be transferred to the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran. This would be in effect until the spouse remarries, sells or disposes of the property.This allows spouses of deceased vets to stay in their homes and not get a large property tax increase.The appraisers office has an amazing website and you can even calculate what your proposed property tax will be on a home you may consider buying or look at nearby sales if you maybe selling!https://www.pbcgov.org/papaBecome a Patron!">Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?u=33101553" data-patreon-widget-type="become-patron-button">Become a Patron!)
