Florida Proposed Rules
The purpose of the proposed revisions to Rule 12D-16.002 is to incorporate amended Forms DR-490PORT, DR-501, DR-501DV and DR-501RVSH. The purpose of the proposed revisions to Form DR-490PORT, Notice of Denial of Transfer of Homestead Assessment Difference, Form DR-501RVSH, Certificate for Transfer of Homestead Assessment Difference, and Form DR-501, Original Application for Homestead and Related Tax Exemptions, is to update the reference to the time limit to transfer the assessment difference from two to three years. Additional changes to Form DR-501 update social information and add information that the disabled veteran discount carries over to the surviving spouse.
The purpose of the proposed revisions to Form DR-501DV, Application and Return for Homestead Tax Discount, Veterans Age 65 and Older with a Combat-Related Disability and Surviving Spouse, is to align the form to section 196.082, F.S., as amended by Chapter 2020-179, L.O.F., which provided for the surviving spouse to receive the veteran's disability discount. The proposed revisions added the spouse's name to the application for discount and removed obsolete statute language.
