Exemption for Blind Persons
A Florida homeowner, who has a homestead exemption and is certified as legally blind, can qualify for a $500 Blind Person’s Exemption.
The legally blind standard is outlined in the law as follows:
“Central vision acuity 20/200 or less in the better eye with correcting glasses, or a disqualifying field defect in which the peripheral field has contracted to such an extent that the widest diameter or visual field subtends an angular distance no greater than twenty degrees.”
There is no income qualification attached to this exemption.
All property Tax Exemption Applications are due March 1st.
