Florida Amendment 2, the Permanent Cap on Nonhomestead Parcel Assessment Increases Amendment
Amendment 2 now makes permanent the cap of 10 percent on annual nonhomestead parcel assessment increases which was set to expire on January 1, 2019. The cap does not apply to school district taxes. Voters approved the cap in 2008, when 64 percent voted to pass Amendment 1.
