Disabled veterans who weren’t Florida residents before enlisting could qualify for a property tax discount under Amendment 2. The legislature proposed this as an amendment to the state constitution as a long-term solution. Some argue tax breaks should be placed in the tax code, though.
Of more than 6 million votes cast, 61.02 percent of Amendment 9 voters supported the measure but 38.98 percent opposed it.
Amendment 9 proposes a full property tax exemption be given to living spouses of military veterans who died while on active duty and first responders who died on the job.

Low-income seniors who have lived in the same house for more than 25 years would qualify for another local property tax exemption under Amendment 11.
