Fishkind Conversations: Amendment 1
There are 13 proposed constitutional amendments on the November ballot. Among them is Amendment 1 that would provide a homestead exemption on the portion of home values between $100,000 and $125,000, meaning some of a home’s value would be exempted from property taxes other than school district taxes.
