Hillsborough County increases homestead exemptions for seniors

Senior citizens represent a large portion of Floridians who are particularly vulnerable in this difficult economy.

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 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.
