Portability - the Transfer of Homestead Assessment Difference
Property owners with a Homestead Exemption also receive a benefit known as Amendment 10 or "Save Our Homes." Amendment 10 limits increases in the annual assessment of a home to a maximum of 3% regardless of increases in market value.
Beginning in 2008 homeowners may be able to transfer (or port) the savings they have accumulated (known as the Homestead Assessment Difference) to another homesteaded property up to $500,000.
All property Tax Exemption Applications are due March 1st.
