Hillsborough County increases homestead exemptions for seniors

Senior citizens represent a large portion of Floridians who are particularly vulnerable in this difficult economy. Fortunately, there are a variety of state exemptions and other programs available to help those who are struggling. Most counties have at least a few programs for seniors and other groups with special needs from tax breaks for the disabled to certain exemptions.

Florida homeowners associations going after banks for back fees

Florida abounds with empty homes that have been foreclosed on due to homeowners who have filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy or who have had trouble making their mortgage payments. This has resulted in a surprising turn of events in which homeowners associations are faced with lenders not maintaining the vacant properties they've taken over -- or paying the association dues.

More fraudulent debt relief and credit recovery businesses halted

The Federal Trade Commission is cracking down on companies that take advantage of Americans who are saddled with debt. Knowing that there are many consumers seeking debt relief, businesses abound that promise deals such as low-interest credit cards, instant approval for those with bad credit, balance transfers and other programs to help those in debt. Unfortunately, many of these companies use shady business practices such as confusing contracts and "robocalls" with misleading claims, which often end up fleecing people who are already facing financial challenges.

Personal bankruptcies decrease in Florida for 2 straight years

Personal bankruptcies have fallen throughout parts of Florida for the second year straight. Financial challenges continue to be a difficult issue nationwide since the housing market collapsed in 2007. In Florida, foreclosure activity is still the highest in the country, so many experts in bankruptcy law aren't sure why there is a decrease in the amount of Florida bankruptcies.
