ARTICLE VII

FINANCE AND TAXATION

SECTION 3.  Taxes; exemptions.—

(a)  All property owned by a municipality and used exclusively by it for municipal or public purposes shall be exempt from taxation. A municipality, owning property outside the municipality, may be required by general law to make payment to the taxing unit in which the property is located. Such portions of property as are used predominantly for educational, literary, scientific, religious or charitable purposes may be exempted by general law from taxation.

(b)  There shall be exempt from taxation, cumulatively, to every head of a family residing in this state, household goods and personal effects to the value fixed by general law, not less than one thousand dollars, and to every widow or widower or person who is blind or totally and permanently disabled, property to the value fixed by general law not less than five hundred dollars.

(c)  Any county or municipality may, for the purpose of its respective tax levy and subject to the provisions of this subsection and general law, grant community and economic development ad valorem tax exemptions to new businesses and expansions of existing businesses, as defined by general law. Such an exemption may be granted only by ordinance of the county or municipality, and only after the electors of the county or municipality voting on such question in a referendum authorize the county or municipality to adopt such ordinances. An exemption so granted shall apply to improvements to real property made by or for the use of a new business and improvements to real property related to the expansion of an existing business and shall also apply to tangible personal property of such new business and tangible personal property related to the expansion of an existing business. The amount or limits of the amount of such exemption shall be specified by general law. The period of time for which such exemption may be granted to a new business or expansion of an existing business shall be determined by general law. The authority to grant such exemption shall expire ten years from the date of approval by the electors of the county or municipality, and may be renewable by referendum as provided by general law.

(d)  Any county or municipality may, for the purpose of its respective tax levy and subject to the provisions of this subsection and general law, grant historic preservation ad valorem tax exemptions to owners of historic properties. This exemption may be granted only by ordinance of the county or municipality. The amount or limits of the amount of this exemption and the requirements for eligible properties must be specified by general law. The period of time for which this exemption may be granted to a property owner shall be determined by general law.

(e)  By general law and subject to conditions specified therein:,

(1)  Twenty-five thousand dollars of the assessed value of property subject to tangible personal property tax shall be exempt from ad valorem taxation.

(2)  The assessed value of solar devices or renewable energy source devices subject to tangible personal property tax may be exempt from ad valorem taxation, subject to limitations provided by general law.

(f)  There shall be granted an ad valorem tax exemption for real property dedicated in perpetuity for conservation purposes, including real property encumbered by perpetual conservation easements or by other perpetual conservation protections, as defined by general law.

(g)  By general law and subject to the conditions specified therein, each person who receives a homestead exemption as provided in section 6 of this article; who was a member of the United States military or military reserves, the United States Coast Guard or its reserves, or the Florida National Guard; and who was deployed during the preceding calendar year on active duty outside the continental United States, Alaska, or Hawaii in support of military operations designated by the legislature shall receive an additional exemption equal to a percentage of the taxable value of his or her homestead property. The applicable percentage shall be calculated as the number of days during the preceding calendar year the person was deployed on active duty outside the continental United States, Alaska, or Hawaii in support of military operations designated by the legislature divided by the number of days in that year.

SECTION 4.  Taxation; assessments.—By general law regulations shall be prescribed which shall secure a just valuation of all property for ad valorem taxation, provided:

(a)  Agricultural land, land producing high water recharge to Florida’s aquifers, or land used exclusively for noncommercial recreational purposes may be classified by general law and assessed solely on the basis of character or use.

(b)  As provided by general law and subject to conditions, limitations, and reasonable definitions specified therein, land used for conservation purposes shall be classified by general law and assessed solely on the basis of character or use.

(c)  Pursuant to general law tangible personal property held for sale as stock in trade and livestock may be valued for taxation at a specified percentage of its value, may be classified for tax purposes, or may be exempted from taxation.

(d)  All persons entitled to a homestead exemption under Section 6 of this Article shall have their homestead assessed at just value as of January 1 of the year following the effective date of this amendment. This assessment shall change only as provided in this subsection.

(1)  Assessments subject to this subsection shall be changed annually on January 1st of each year; but those changes in assessments shall not exceed the lower of the following:

a. Three percent (3%) of the assessment for the prior year.

b.  The percent change in the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers, U.S. City Average, all items 1967=100, or successor reports for the preceding calendar year as initially reported by the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.

(2)  No assessment shall exceed just value.

(3)  After any change of ownership, as provided by general law, homestead property shall be assessed at just value as of January 1 of the following year, unless the provisions of paragraph (8) apply. Thereafter, the homestead shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

(4)  New homestead property shall be assessed at just value as of January 1st of the year following the establishment of the homestead, unless the provisions of paragraph (8) apply. That assessment shall only change as provided in this subsection.

(5)  Changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to homestead property shall be assessed as provided for by general law; provided, however, after the adjustment for any change, addition, reduction, or improvement, the property shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

(6)  In the event of a termination of homestead status, the property shall be assessed as provided by general law.

(7)  The provisions of this amendment are severable. If any of the provisions of this amendment shall be held unconstitutional by any court of competent jurisdiction, the decision of such court shall not affect or impair any remaining provisions of this amendment.

(8)a.  A person who establishes a new homestead as of January 1, 2009, or January 1 of any subsequent year and who has received a homestead exemption pursuant to Section 6 of this Article as of January 1 of either of the two years immediately preceding the establishment of the new homestead is entitled to have the new homestead assessed at less than just value. If this revision is approved in January of 2008, a person who establishes a new homestead as of January 1, 2008, is entitled to have the new homestead assessed at less than just value only if that person received a homestead exemption on January 1, 2007. The assessed value of the newly established homestead shall be determined as follows:

1.  If the just value of the new homestead is greater than or equal to the just value of the prior homestead as of January 1 of the year in which the prior homestead was abandoned, the assessed value of the new homestead shall be the just value of the new homestead minus an amount equal to the lesser of $500,000 or the difference between the just value and the assessed value of the prior homestead as of January 1 of the year in which the prior homestead was abandoned. Thereafter, the homestead shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

2.  If the just value of the new homestead is less than the just value of the prior homestead as of January 1 of the year in which the prior homestead was abandoned, the assessed value of the new homestead shall be equal to the just value of the new homestead divided by the just value of the prior homestead and multiplied by the assessed value of the prior homestead. However, if the difference between the just value of the new homestead and the assessed value of the new homestead calculated pursuant to this sub-subparagraph is greater than $500,000, the assessed value of the new homestead shall be increased so that the difference between the just value and the assessed value equals $500,000. Thereafter, the homestead shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

b.  By general law and subject to conditions specified therein, the legislature shall provide for application of this paragraph to property owned by more than one person.

(e)  The legislature may, by general law, for assessment purposes and subject to the provisions of this subsection, allow counties and municipalities to authorize by ordinance that historic property may be assessed solely on the basis of character or use. Such character or use assessment shall apply only to the jurisdiction adopting the ordinance. The requirements for eligible properties must be specified by general law.

(f)  A county may, in the manner prescribed by general law, provide for a reduction in the assessed value of homestead property to the extent of any increase in the assessed value of that property which results from the construction or reconstruction of the property for the purpose of providing living quarters for one or more natural or adoptive grandparents or parents of the owner of the property or of the owner’s spouse if at least one of the grandparents or parents for whom the living quarters are provided is 62 years of age or older. Such a reduction may not exceed the lesser of the following:

(1)  The increase in assessed value resulting from construction or reconstruction of the property.

(2)  Twenty percent of the total assessed value of the property as improved.

(g)  For all levies other than school district levies, assessments of residential real property, as defined by general law, which contains nine units or fewer and which is not subject to the assessment limitations set forth in subsections (a) through (d) shall change only as provided in this subsection.

(1)  Assessments subject to this subsection shall be changed annually on the date of assessment provided by law; but those changes in assessments shall not exceed ten percent (10%) of the assessment for the prior year.

(2)  No assessment shall exceed just value.

(3)  After a change of ownership or control, as defined by general law, including any change of ownership of a legal entity that owns the property, such property shall be assessed at just value as of the next assessment date. Thereafter, such property shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

(4)  Changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to such property shall be assessed as provided for by general law; however, after the adjustment for any change, addition, reduction, or improvement, the property shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

(h)  For all levies other than school district levies, assessments of real property that is not subject to the assessment limitations set forth in subsections (a) through (d) and (g) shall change only as provided in this subsection.

(1)  Assessments subject to this subsection shall be changed annually on the date of assessment provided by law; but those changes in assessments shall not exceed ten percent (10%) of the assessment for the prior year.

(2)  No assessment shall exceed just value.

(3)  The legislature must provide that such property shall be assessed at just value as of the next assessment date after a qualifying improvement, as defined by general law, is made to such property. Thereafter, such property shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

(4)  The legislature may provide that such property shall be assessed at just value as of the next assessment date after a change of ownership or control, as defined by general law, including any change of ownership of the legal entity that owns the property. Thereafter, such property shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

(5)  Changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to such property shall be assessed as provided for by general law; however, after the adjustment for any change, addition, reduction, or improvement, the property shall be assessed as provided in this subsection.

Dicha exención sólo puede concederse por ordenanza del condado o de la municipalidad, luego de la votación de sus electores a través de un referéndum que autorice a las autoridades a adoptar dicha ordenanza. Esta exención concedida debe aplicarse a la mejora de los bienes inmuebles hechos por o para el uso de los nuevos empresarios, a la mejora de los bienes inmuebles relacionados con la expansión de un negocio ya existente y a la propiedad personal tangible de tales nuevos negocios y bienes personales tangibles relacionados con la expansión de los negocios existentes. Los montos o los límites de los montos de dicha exención deben ser especificados por ley. El período de tiempo por el cual la exención puede ser concedida a un nuevo negocio o a la expansión de uno ya existente debe estar determinado por ley. La autoridad que concede la exención debe expirar luego de diez años de la fecha de aprobación de los electores del condado o la municipalidad, y puede ser renovada a través de un referéndum, tal como está previsto por ley.

(d)  Todo condado o municipalidad puede, a los efectos de su propia recaudación impositiva y sujeto a las previsiones de este inciso y de la ley, otorgarle una exención al impuesto ad valorem a los dueños de propiedades históricas con el objetivo de la preservación histórica. Esta exención puede ser otorgada sólo por la ordenanza del condado o la municipalidad. Los montos o los límites de los montos de esta exención y los requerimientos para que las propiedades sean seleccionadas, deben estar especificados por ley. El período de tiempo por el cual esta exención puede ser otorgada a los dueños de las propiedades debe estar determinado por ley.

(e)  Por ley y de acuerdo a las condiciones especificadas en el presente:,

(1)  Veinticinco mil dólares del valor de tasación de la propiedad sujeta al impuesto a la propiedad personal tangible estarán exentos del impuesto ad valorem.

(2)  El valor de tasación de los dispositivos solares o de una fuente de energía renovable sujetos al impuesto a la propiedad personal tangible pueden estar exentos del impuesto ad valorem, sujeto a las limitaciones provistas por ley.

(f)  Se concederá una exención al impuesto ad valorem a los bienes inmuebles dedicados a perpetuidad a la conservación, incluyendo bienes inmuebles como espacios de conservación a perpetuidad o con otros objetivos de conservación, tal como es definido por ley.

(g)  Por ley y sujeto a las condiciones especificadas aquí, las personas que reciben una exención sobre su propiedad, tal como está previsto en el inciso 6 de este artículo, son: quien fue miembro del Ejército de los Estados Unidos o parte de la reserva, Guardacostas de los Estados Unidos o sus reservas, miembros de la Guardia Nacional de Florida, y quien estuvo sirviendo activamente durante el calendario anterior por fuera del suelo estadounidense, Alaska, o Hawái, en apoyo a las actividades militares designadas por el legislativo; deben recibir una exención adicional que sea equivalente al porcentaje del valor impositivo de su propiedad de vivienda. El porcentaje aplicable debe ser calculado a través del número de días del calendario anterior que esa persona estuvo en servicio activo por fuera del suelo de Estados Unidos, Alaska o Hawái, en apoyo a las operaciones militares designadas por el legislativo, dividido el número de días de ese año.

Sección 4.  Tributación; tasaciones.—Por ley, las regulaciones deben asegurar la valoración de mercado de todas las propiedades para el impuesto ad valorem, provisto:

(a)  La tierra agrícola, zona de recarga de los acuíferos de Florida, o la tierra utilizada exclusivamente con fines recreativos no comerciales puede ser clasificada por ley y tasada únicamente sobre la base de su naturaleza o su uso.

(b)  Según lo provisto por la ley y sujeto a las condiciones, limitaciones y definiciones razonables especificadas en este documento, la tierra utilizada con fines de conservación debe ser clasificada por ley y tasada únicamente sobre la base de su naturaleza o uso.

(c)  En conformidad con la ley, la propiedad personal tangible disponible como existencias para la venta comercial o ganadera puede ser valuada para su tributación a un porcentaje específico de su valor, puede ser clasificada con efectos impositivos o puede estar exenta de impuestos.

(d)  Todas las personas con derecho a una exención de bienes de familia bajo el inciso 6 de este artículo deben hacer tasar sus bienes familiares a su valor de mercado a partir del 1° de enero del año siguiente a la fecha efectiva de esta enmienda. Esta tasación puede cambiar únicamente de acuerdo a lo estipulado en este inciso.

(1)  Las tasaciones sujetas a este inciso deben modificarse anualmente, el 1° de enero de cada año; pero esos cambios en las tasaciones no pueden exceder el más bajo de los siguientes:

a.  Tres por ciento (3%) de la tasación del año anterior.

b.  El cambio porcentual en el Índice de Precios del Consumidor para todos los consumidores urbanos, el promedio de las ciudades de Estados Unidos, todos los ítems 1967=100, o los reportes sucesivos para el calendario anterior inicialmente informados por el Departamento de Trabajo de los Estados Unidos, Oficina de Estadísticas Laborales.

(2)  Las tasaciones no pueden exceder su valor de mercado.

(3)  Tras un cambio de dueño, como es provisto por la ley, los bienes de familia deben ser tasados a su valor de mercado al 1° de enero del siguiente año, a menos que se apliquen las previsiones del inciso (8). En lo sucesivo, la vivienda debe ser tasada como está previsto en este inciso.

(4)  Los nuevos bienes de familia deben ser tasados a su valor de mercado a partir del 1° de enero al año siguiente al establecimiento de la propiedad, a menos que se apliquen las previsiones del inciso (8). Esa tasación sólo debe modificarse según está previsto en este inciso.

(5)  Los cambios, las adiciones, las reducciones o las mejoras sobre la propiedad deben ser tasadas como está previsto en la ley; siempre y cuando, luego del ajuste por los cambios, las adiciones, las reducciones o las mejoras sean tasadas como está indicado en este inciso.

(6)  En el caso de que finalice su calificación como vivienda, la propiedad debe ser tasada como contempla la ley.

(7)  Las previsiones de esta enmienda son disociativas. Si alguna de las previsiones de esta enmienda puede ser considerada inconstitucional por cualquier juzgado de jurisdicción competente, la decisión de esa corte no debe afectar o impedir las previsiones restantes de la enmienda.

(8)a.  Una persona que tiene una nueva propiedad partir del 1° de enero de 2009 o de cualquier año posterior y que ha recibido una exención de impuestos a la propiedad de acuerdo a la Sección 6 de este Artículo a partir del 1° de enero o en cualquiera de los dos años anteriores a la posesión de la nueva propiedad, tiene derecho a que sea tasada a un monto menor al de su valor de mercado. Si esta revisión es aprobada en enero de 2008, una persona con una nueva propiedad a partir del 1° de enero de 2008, tiene derecho a que la tasación de aquella sea menor a la de su valor de mercado sólo si esa persona recibió una exención para la propiedad el 1° de enero de 2007. El valor de tasación de las nuevas propiedades debe estar determinado por lo siguiente:

1.  Si el valor de mercado de la nueva propiedad es mayor o igual al de la anterior a partir del 1° de enero del año en el que la propiedad anterior fue dejada, el valor de tasación de la nueva debe ser el valor de mercado de la nueva propiedad menos un monto igual o menor a $500.000, o la diferencia entre el valor de mercado y el valor de tasación de la propiedad anterior a partir del 1° de enero del año en el que fue dejada. En lo sucesivo, la propiedad debe ser tasada de acuerdo a este inciso.

2.  Si el valor de mercado de la nueva propiedad es menor al valor de mercado de la anterior a partir del 1° de enero del año en el que fue dejada, el valor de tasación de la nuevo propiedad debe ser igual al valor de mercado dividido por el valor de mercado de la propiedad anterior y multiplicado por el valor de tasación de la primera. Sin embargo, si la diferencia entre el valor de mercado de la nueva propiedad y el valor de tasación calculado de acuerdo a este subinciso es mayor a $500.000, el valor de tasación de la nueva propiedad debe aumentarse para que la diferencia entre el valor de mercado y el valor de tasación sea de $500.000- En lo sucesivo, la propiedad debe ser tasada como está provisto en este inciso.

b.  Por ley y de acuerdo a las condiciones especificadas en este documento, la legislatura dispondrá sobre la aplicación de este párrafo a las propiedades con más de un propietario.

(e)  La legislatura puede, por ley, con propósitos de tasación y sujeto a las provisiones de este inciso, permitirle a los municipios y municipalidades que emitan una ordenanza que indique que las propiedades con valor histórico sean tasadas sobre la base de su naturaleza o su uso.
