Q:  I'm recently retired and relocated to Florida.  I understand there is a homestead exemption for Veterans.  Is this true?

A:  It appears so, however, not all veterans qualify for these exemptions and they can vary from county to county, or city to city.  Every Veteran should contact their local municipal tax assessor's office for complete information.
