BRIEF EXPLANATORY STATEMENT
SPECIAL ELECTION AUGUST 9. 1997
PROPOSITION N0.1 ON THE BALLOT
House Joint Resolution 4 proposes a constitutional amendment which would increase the school property tax residence homestead exemption from $5,000 to $15,000. The amendment would also authorize the Legislature to limit all or part of the exemption to political subdivisions that are the principal providers of elementary and secondary education withir their boundaries.
In addition, the amendment would authorize the Legislature to allow the transfer of all or part of the age 65-and-over tax freeze to another homestead. Specifically, the Legislature would be authorized to provide that the current limitation against increasing school property taxes on the residence homesteads of persons age 65 or older, or their surviving spouse who is eligible to receive the exemption, may be transferred if the person establishes a different residence homestead.
The amendment would also allow the $10,000 additional amount for the standard exemption to be used to lower the tax rate of persons cur
rently receiving the 65-and-over tax freeze. Specifically, for a homestead affected by this limitation in 19% or in an earlier tax year, the Legislature must provide for a reduction in the school property tax limitation in the 1997 tax year and subsequent tax years in an amount equal to $10,000 multiplied by the 1997 school property tax rate.
The proposed amendment will appear on the ballot as follows:
‘The constitutional amendment providing school property tax relief by increasing the residence homestead exemption by $10,000 and providing for the transfer of the tax limitation to another qualified homestead for persons over 65 and a reduction in taxes subject to the limitation.”
