PORTABILITY TAX SAVINGS DEADLINE MONDAY

Did you sell your homesteaded property in 2007 and purchase a new one before January 1st?  If so you are eligible for an extra tax break, or are you?

I sold a house and bought a bigger one, however owning the old house for just over two years and having the value drop last year I had nothing to move but if you lived in the old house for a longer period of time you might miss out on some extra tax savings.

Here is what you need to qualify:

1.  Sold your homesteaded property in 2007

2.  Bought a new property before January 1st 2008

3.  You need to submit form DR-501T before Monday March 3rd.

CALLING All Florida agents- If you sold a property last year now is a great time to call your old clients and let them know about this tax savings.
