*Taxes for the homestead residence of citizens over age 65 are frozen and will not increase as a result of the bond election.

*By more than doubling the current homestead exemption, state lawmakers have reduced the overall school property tax burden by replacing that local revenue with state financial resources. By increasing the homestead exemption to $100,000 from the previous $40,000, the change will save homeowners an estimated $600-$900 a year, permanently.
