WFXR News is your local election headquarters, and on the ballot this November in addition to electing officials to office, you will also have two constitutional amendments to consider.
The first question centers on whether localities should have the option to give tax breaks on properties that are prone to flooding, if improvements to withstand damage from flooding have been made.
Here the question as it will appear on the ballot:
- Question: Should a county, city, or town be authorized to provide a partial tax exemption for real property that is subject to recurrent flooding, if flooding resiliency improvements have been made on the property?
The second question asks if the state should extend property tax exemptions for surviving spouses of veterans who were disabled, to properties other than the home they lived in with their husband or wife.
Here is the question as it appears on the November 6th ballot.
- Question: Shall the real property tax exemption for a primary residence that is currently provided to the surviving spouses of veterans who had a one hundred percent service-connected, permanent, and total disability be amended to allow the surviving spouse to move to a different primary residence and still claim the exemption?
