No. 6

Constitutional Amendment

Article VII, Section 6 and Article XII

 

ARTICLE VII Finance and Taxation SECTION 6. Homestead exemptions.—

(a) Every person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of the owner, or another legally or naturally dependent upon the owner, shall be exempt from taxation thereon, except assessments for special benefits, up to the assessed valuation of twenty-five thousand dollars and, for all levies other than school district levies, on the assessed valuation greater than fifty thousand 1 dollars and up to seventy-five thousand dollars, upon establishment of right thereto in the manner prescribed by law. The real estate may be held by legal or equitable title, by the entireties, jointly, in common, as a condominium, or indirectly by stock ownership or membership representing the owner's or member's proprietary interest in a corporation owning a fee or a leasehold initially in excess of ninety-eight years. The exemption shall not apply with respect to any assessment roll until such roll is first determined to be in compliance with the provisions of section 4 by a state agency designated by general law. This exemption is repealed on the effective date of any amendment to this Article which provides for the assessment of homestead property at less than just value.

(b) Not more than one exemption shall be allowed any individual or family unit or with respect to any residential unit. No exemption shall exceed the value of the real estate assessable to the owner or, in case of ownership through stock or membership in a corporation, the value of the proportion which the interest in the corporation bears to the assessed value of the property.

(c) By general law and subject to conditions specified therein, the Legislature may provide to renters, who are permanent residents, ad valorem tax relief on all ad valorem tax levies. Such ad valorem tax relief shall be in the form and amount established by general law.

(d) The legislature may, by general law, allow counties or municipalities, for the purpose of their respective tax levies and subject to the provisions of general law, to grant either or both of the following additional homestead tax exemptions:

(1) An exemption not exceeding fifty thousand dollars to a person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of the owner, who has attained age sixty-five, and whose household income, as defined by general law, does not exceed twenty thousand dollars; or

(2) An exemption equal to the assessed value of the property to a person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate with a just value less than two hundred and fifty thousand dollars, as determined in the first tax year that the owner applies and is eligible for the exemption, and who has maintained thereon the permanent residence of the owner for not less than twenty-five years, who has attained age sixty-five, and whose household income does not exceed the income limitation prescribed in paragraph (1). The general law must allow counties and municipalities to grant these additional exemptions, within the limits prescribed in this subsection, by ordinance adopted in the manner prescribed by general law, and must provide for the periodic adjustment of the income limitation prescribed in this subsection for changes in the cost of living.

(e)(1) Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partially or totally permanently disabled shall receive a discount from the amount of the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property the veteran owns and resides in if the disability was combat related and the veteran was honorably discharged upon separation from military service.

The Legislature may, by general law, waive the annual application requirement in subsequent years.

(2) If a veteran who receives the discount described in paragraph (1) predeceases his or her spouse, and if, upon the death of the veteran, the surviving spouse holds the legal or beneficial title to the homestead property and permanently resides thereon, the discount carries over to the surviving spouse until he or she remarries or sells or otherwise disposes of the homestead property. If the surviving spouse sells or otherwise disposes of the property, a discount not to exceed the dollar amount granted from the most recent ad valorem tax roll may be transferred to the surviving spouse's new homestead property, if used as his or her permanent residence and he or she has not remarried.

(3) This subsection is self-executing and does not require implementing legislation.

(f) By general law and subject to conditions and limitations specified therein, the Legislature may provide ad valorem tax relief equal to the total amount or a portion of the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property to:

(1) The surviving spouse of a veteran who died from service-connected causes while on active duty as a member of the United States Armed Forces.

(2) The surviving spouse of a first responder who died in the line of duty.

(3) A first responder who is totally and permanently disabled as a result of an injury or injuries sustained in the line of duty. Causal connection between a disability and service in the line of duty shall not be presumed but must be determined as provided by general law. For purposes of this paragraph, the term "disability" does not include a chronic condition or chronic disease, unless the injury sustained in the line of duty was the sole cause of the chronic condition or chronic disease. As used in this subsection and as further defined by general law, the term "first responder" means a law enforcement officer, a correctional officer, a firefighter, an emergency medical technician, or a paramedic, and the term "in the line of duty" means arising out of and in the actual performance of duty required by employment as a first responder.

(c) Conforme la ley general los bienes personales tangibles conservados para la venta en unidades de intercambio comercial o en cabezas de ganado podrán valuarse para la determinación de impuestos a un porcentaje específico de su valor, podrán clasificarse para la determinación de impuestos, o podrán estar exentos del pago de impuesto.

(d) A las personas con derecho a la exención del pago de impuestos a la propiedad constituida en bien de familia conforme al Sección 6 de este Artículo se las evaluará su bien de familia al justo valor vigente al 1° de enero del año posterior a la fecha en que esta reforma entre en vigencia.

(2)  Ninguna evaluación excederá el valor justo.

(3)  Con posterioridad a cualquier cambio de dominio, conforme lo establecido por la ley general, la propiedad constituida en bien de familia será evaluada al justo valor vigente al 1 de enero del año posterior, salvo que se apliquen las disposiciones del párrafo (8). A partir de entonces, la propiedad constituida en bien de familia será evaluada conforme las disposiciones establecidas en este inciso.

(4) La nueva propiedad constituida en bien de familia se evaluará según el justo valor vigente al 1 de enero del año posterior a la constitución del bien de familia, salvo que se apliquen las disposiciones del párrafo (8). Esa evaluación solo podrá modificarse según lo dispuesto en este inciso.

(5) Las reformas, agregados, reducciones o mejoras a la propiedad constituida en bien de familia se evaluarán conforme la ley general con la condición de que, con posterioridad a la revisión de la evaluación de cualquier reforma, agregado, reducción o mejora, la propiedad se evaluará conforme lo establecido en este inciso.

(a)  La persona que constituye un nuevo bien de familia al 1 de enero de 2009 o al 1 de enero de los años subsiguientes que haya recibido una exención al pago de impuestos sobre la propiedad constituida como bien de familia conforme el Artículo 6 al 1 de enero de cualquier de los dos años inmediatos anteriores a la constitución del nuevo bien de familia tendrá derecho a una evaluación del nuevo bien de familia a un valor menor al valor justo. Si esta revisión se aprueba en enero de 2008, una persona que establezca una nueva propiedad constituida como bien de familia a partir del 1 de enero de 2008, tiene derecho a que dicha propiedad sea evaluada a un valor menor al justo solo si esa persona recibió una exención de propiedad constituida como bien de familia el 1 de enero de 2007. El valor de la propiedad recientemente constituida como bien de familia se determinará de la siguiente manera:

1. Si el justo valor de la propiedad recientemente constituida en bien de familia es mayor o igual al justo valor de la propiedad anterior constituida en bien de familia al 1 de enero del año en que la propiedad anterior fuera destituida, el valor de la propiedad recientemente constituida en bien de familia será igual al justo valor del nuevo bien de familia menos un monto equivalente al menor monto entre $ 500.000 y la diferencia entre el justo valor y el valor determinado del bien de familia anterior al 1 de enero del año en que el bien de familia anterior fuera destituido. A partir de entonces, la propiedad constituida en bien de familia será evaluada conforme las disposiciones establecidas en este inciso.

2. En caso de que el justo valor del nuevo bien de familia resulte inferior al justo valor del bien de familia anterior vigente al 1 de enero del año en que el bien de familia anterior fuera destituido, el valor determinado del nuevo bien de familia será igual al justo valor del nuevo bien de familia dividido por el justo valor del bien de familia anterior y multiplicado por el valor determinado del bien de familia anterior.

Sin embargo, en caso de que la diferencia entre el justo valor del nuevo bien de familia y el valor determinado del nuevo bien de familia calculado conforme este párrafo, sea mayor a $ 500.000, el valor determinado del nuevo bien de familia será incrementado de manera tal que la diferencia entre el justo valor y el valor determinado sea igual a $ 500.000. A partir de entonces, la propiedad constituida en bien de familia será evaluada conforme las disposiciones establecidas en este inciso.

b.  Por aplicación de la ley general y conforme los principios allí establecidos, la legislatura preverá la aplicación de este párrafo a la propiedad que tenga más de un propietario.

(e) La legislatura podrá, por ley general, a los fines de la evaluación y conforme las disposiciones de este inciso, facultar a los condados y municipalidades a autorizar por ordenanza la evaluación de propiedad histórica únicamente en razón de su naturaleza o uso.

(1) Las evaluaciones alcanzadas por este inciso se modificarán anualmente en la fecha de evaluación establecida por la ley; a condición de que tales modificaciones en las evaluaciones no superen el diez por ciento (10%) de la evaluación del año anterior.

(2) Ninguna evaluación excederá el valor justo.

(3) Con posterioridad a un cambio de dominio o administración, conforme lo establecido por la ley general, incluido cualquier cambio en la titularidad de una institución legal propietaria de la propiedad, tal propiedad será evaluada en razón del justo valor vigente a la próxima fecha de evaluación. A partir de entonces, la propiedad será evaluada según lo dispuesto en este inciso.

(4) Las reformas, agregados, reducciones o mejoras a la mencionada propiedad serán evaluadas conforme lo establecido por la ley general.

Enmienda Constitucional

Artículo VII,  Sección 6 y Artículo XII

 

ARTÍCULO VII Finanzas y Tributación, SECCIÓN 6. Exenciones fiscales para la vivienda constituida como bien de familia.--

(a) Toda persona que tenga el título legal o equitativo de bienes inmuebles y mantenga allí la residencia permanente del propietario, u otra persona legal o naturalmente dependiente del propietario, estará exenta de impuestos al respecto, excepto las evaluaciones de beneficios especiales, hasta la tasación de veinticinco mil dólares y, para todas las obligaciones distintas a las obligaciones del distrito escolar, en la valuación tasada mayor de cincuenta mil dólares y hasta setenta y cinco mil dólares, una vez establecido el derecho a los mismos en la forma prescrita por ley. La titularidad sobre los bienes raíces podrá ser legal o equitativa, mancomunada, solidaria, en común, como condominio, o indirectamente mediante la tenencia de acciones o la participación que representen el derecho de propiedad del propietario o socio en una sociedad que tenga el dominio o los derechos de arrendamiento que inicialmente superen noventa y ocho años. La exención no se aplicará respecto a ningún registro de tasación hasta que primero un organismo estatal designado por la ley general determine que dicho registro cumple las disposiciones de la sección 4. Esta exención se revocará en la fecha de entrada en vigencia de cualquier enmienda a este Artículo que disponga la tasación de la propiedad constituida como bien de familia a un valor inferior al valor justo.

(b)  No se le permitirá más de una exención a ninguna persona o unidad familiar respecto a ninguna unidad residencial. Ninguna exención superará el valor de los bienes raíces tasables al propietario o, en caso de dominio mediante acciones o participación en una sociedad, el valor de la proporción que devengue la participación en la sociedad sobre valor tasado del inmueble.

(c) De conformidad con la ley general y con sujeción a las condiciones que se especifican en la misma, el Poder Legislativo podrá entregarles a los arrendatarios que sean residentes permanentes una desgravación fiscal ad valorem sobre todas las obligaciones fiscales ad valorem. Dicha desgravación fiscal ad valorem se establecerá de la forma y en el monto que disponga la ley general.

(d) El poder legislativo podrá, de conformidad con la ley general, permitirles a los condados o municipios, para efectos de sus gravámenes fiscales respectivos y con sujeción a las disposiciones de la ley general, conceder cualquiera de las siguientes exenciones fiscales adicionales para la propiedad constituida como bien de familia o ambas:

(1) Una exención que no supere cincuenta mil dólares para una persona que tenga titularidad legal o equitativa sobre bienes raíces y mantenga en los mismos la residencia permanente del propietario, que haya cumplido la edad de sesenta y cinco años, y cuyos ingresos del hogar, según lo define la ley general, no superen veinticinco mil dólares; o

(2) Una exención equivalente al valor tasado del inmueble para una persona que tenga titularidad legal o equitativa sobre los bienes raíces con un valor justo inferior a doscientos cincuenta mil dólares, según se determine en el primer ejercicio fiscal que aplique el propietario y que cumpla los requisitos para la exención, y que haya mantenido en los mismos la residencia permanente del propietario durante al menos veinticinco años, que haya cumplido la edad de sesenta y cinco años, y cuyos ingresos del hogar no superen la limitación sobre ingresos que se prescribe en el párrrafo(1).

La ley general debe permitirles a los condados y municipios conceder dichas exenciones adicionales, dentro de los límites que se prescriben en este inciso, mediante una ordenanza que se adopte de la manera que lo prescribe la ley general, y debe disponer el ajuste periódico de la limitación sobre ingresos que se prescribe en este inciso respecto a los cambios en el costo de vida.

(e)

(1) Cada veterano que tenga 65 años o más y que se encuentre completa o parcialmente discapacitado recibirá un descuento del monto del impuesto ad valorem que se adeude sobre la vivienda familiar que posea el veterano y donde el mismo resida si la discapacidad hubiera sido causada por el combate y el veterano hubiera sido dado de baja con honor tras retirarse del servicio militar. El descuento se expresará en un porcentaje equivalente al porcentaje de la discapacidad permanente vinculada al servicio del veterano, según lo determine el Departamento de Asuntos de los Veteranos de los Estados Unidos. Para calificar para el descuento otorgado por el párrrafo inciso, el solicitante debe presentar al tasador de propiedades del condado, antes del 1 de marzo, una carta oficial del Departamento de Asuntos de los Veteranos de los Estados Unidos que indique el porcentaje de discapacidad relacionada con el servicio del veterano como relacionado con el combate y una copia de la baja honorable del veterano. Si el tasador inmobiliario rechaza la solicitud de descuento, el tasador debe notificarle al solicitante por escrito los motivos del rechazo y el veterano podrá volver a realizar la solicitud. El Poder Legislativo podrá, de conformidad con la ley general, desistir del requerimiento anual de solicitudes en los años posteriores.

(2) Si un veterano que recibe el descuento descrito en el párrrafo (1) antecede a su cónyuge, y si, al fallecer el veterano, el cónyuge sobreviviente posee el título legal o beneficioso de la propiedad constituida como bien de familia y reside permanentemente en ella, el descuento se transfiere al cónyuge sobreviviente hasta que él o ella se vuelva a casar, venda o de otra manera disponga de la propiedad. Si el cónyuge sobreviviente vende o de otra manera dispone de la propiedad, un descuento que no exceda el monto en dólares otorgado por la lista de impuestos ad valorem más reciente puede transferirse a la nueva propiedad constituida como bien de familia del cónyuge sobreviviente, si se utiliza como su residencia permanente y él o ella no se ha vuelto a casar.

(3) Este inciso tiene efecto inmediato y no necesita legislación de implementación.

(f)  De conformidad con la ley general y con sujeción a las condiciones y limitaciones que se especifican en la misma, el Poder Legislativo podrá entregarle una desgravación fiscal ad valorem equivalente al monto total o una parte del impuesto ad valorem que se adeude sobre la vivienda constituida como bien de familia a:

(1) El cónyuge sobreviviente de un veterano que haya muerto durante su servicio activo en calidad de miembro de las Fuerzas Armadas de los Estados Unidos.

(2) El cónyuge sobreviviente de un primer interviniente que haya muerto en acto de servicio.

(3) Un primer interviniente que se encuentre completa y permanentemente discapacitado a causa de una lesión o lesiones que haya sufrido en acto de servicio. La conexión causal entre una discapacidad y el acto de servicio no debe presumirse, sino que determinarse según lo dispone la ley general. Para efectos de este apartado, el término “discapacidad” no incluye una afección crónica o enfermedad crónica, a menos que la lesión que se haya sufrido en acto de servicio hubiera sido la única causa de la afección crónica y la enfermedad crónica.

Según se usa en este inciso y según lo defina más extensamente la ley general, el término “primer interviniente” hace referencia una autoridad encargada de hacer cumplir la ley, un oficial correccional, un bombero, un técnico médico de emergencia o un paramédico, y el término “en servicio activo” significa que surge a raíz del desempeño real del servicio que sea necesario en virtud del trabajo como primer interviniente.

 

ARTÍCULO XII, ANEXO

Descuento fiscal ad valorem para cónyuges de ciertos veteranos fallecidos que tenían discapacidades permanentes. La enmienda a la Sección 6 del Artículo VII, relacionada con el descuento fiscal ad valorem para cónyuges de ciertos veteranos fallecidos que tenían discapacidades permanentes relacionadas con el combate y este artículo entrarán en vigor el 1 de enero de 2021.
