Thank you for your support of Amendment 4. Thanks to you and many others who recognized the benefit of amending the state constitution to expand exemption of property tax for renewable energy equipment, including solar panels, to include commercial properties; a benefit only available to homeowners previously. Although property values are increased with the addition of such energy saving equipment, property owners will not have an increase in real estate taxes due to those improvements.
The amendment also removes Florida’s tangible personal property tax which currently taxes added solar equipment. This will bring additional vendors into the state, lowering the cost of such installations for homeowners and owners of commercial properties; and, will bring jobs to our state.
