Car Insurance The mandatory minimum coverage for a registered motor vehicle is $10,000 personal injury protection (PIP) and $10,000 property damage liability (PDL). The minimum coverage applies to all vehicles registered in the state of Florida, even if the vehicle is inoperable.


Homestead Exemption All legal Florida residents who own and reside on property are eligible for a homestead exemption up to $50,000. This exemption applies to the first and third $25,000 of the assessed value of the primary residence. The first $25,000 applies to all property taxes, including school district taxes. The second exemption applies to assessed value over $50,000 and only to non- school taxes. To apply for the exemption, residents should go to their local Property Appraiser’s office between Jan. 1 and March 1 of the year the exemption is sought.


Motor Vehicles Within 10 days of becoming a Florida resident, all motor vehicles in your possession must be registered and have a Florida license plate. You are considered a Florida resident when you have become employed, placed your child in a public school or established residency in Florida.


Property Taxes On the First Coast, property taxes are due in March and are considered delinquent as of April 1. Discounts are given for property taxes paid in advance. The maximum discount offered is 4 percent and applies to taxes paid in Nov. Late taxes are subject to penalty.

Termite Protection Contract Due to Florida’s termite problem, it is required by law that a pest control company provides proof after a termite protection treatment is performed on new homes in the form of a contract. For new construction this contract is valid for a year and can be renewed for up to four additional years. If buying an older home, it is recommended, but not mandatory by law, to have a termite inspection and obtain a termite contract.
