The Most Military-Friendly State now has one more Military-Friendly REALTOR
Posted by Bill True on
Since the passing of the “Florida G.I. Bill”, Florida has been dubbed the most military-friendly state in the USA.
In the new bill, provisions have been made to provide military personnel with education benefits, jobs, property tax exemptions and more. With honor like this, it is no wonder that so many personnel are moving to the paradise of Sarasota.
Let’s take a closer look at the new benefits provided by the “Florida G.I. Bill”:
1. Education Benefits
Starting July 1st, service men and women will be able to pay in-state Florida tuition regardless of residency. In addition, Purple Heart recipients along with the children and spouses of military personnel who died in the line of duty will receive free tuition. Funding also provides deployed National Guard members with the ability to earn their bachelor’s degree online.
Government, county and political positions give preference to military personnel and private employers are allowed to give preference as well (preference includes U.S. Armed Forces Reserves and the Florida National Guard). In addition, for up to 5 years after discharge, professional license fees are waved.
3. Property Tax Exempt
Veterans with total related disabilities are completely exempt from paying property tax on their primary residence while veterans with 10% disabilities or greater will receive a $5,000 exemption on their property tax.
4. Other Benefits
When veterans show the “V” on their license, showing veteran status, they will receive discounts and other benefits.
