House Bill 1102

We all need some Tax Relief, especially if you are a property owner in a market where the value of your property has increased in leaps and bounds over the last year.

The HOST Tax is a 1 percent sales tax. It also requires that at least 80 percent of the previous year’s HOST revenue to be used for property tax relief for homestead properties, which directly reduces the county tax liability of homestead property owners in municipalities and the unincorporated part of the county. Up to 20 percent of the revenue can be used to fund infrastructure improvements. Properties eligible for county homestead exemptions are also eligible for HOST property tax relief. County homestead properties are the primary, non-commercial residences of homeowners, which includes single-family homes and condominiums. This means that commercial properties, such as rental apartments and business establishments do not qualify for property tax relief from HOST revenues. The value of the HOST tax reduction varies by taxpayer with higher-valued homes or homes facing higher millage rates experiencing larger tax reductions. The reduction in taxes for each homestead property is equal to the net county tax liability of the property multiplied by the HOST credit rate. The HOST credit rate equals the ratio of sales tax receipts from the prior year to the value of the county homestead property tax revenue, multiplied by one minus the capital factor.
