Wellington, Florida has long been the winter equestrian capital of the world and indeed the winter home of elite equestrians from around the world. With the Olympics coming up this summer, there are even more reasons to spend the season here testing one’s mettle and competing for a berth on one’s national team during the Winter Equestrian Festival and/or Global Dressage Festival. For passionate followers of the sport, whether owners, riders or enthusiasts, the question has always been: invest in a residence here or acquire a seasonal rental? That question may have been answered once and for all with help of the recent tax code changes and the introduction of a never before available luxury address in the heart of Wellington.
Florida has neither state income taxes — and perhaps yet more importantly — no estate taxes. And then there’s the Homestead exemption. To put it in plain English, as long as you remain in Florida for at least six months cumulatively each year, your real estate taxes are significantly reduced. Taxes are forgiven for the first $50,000 worth of your primary property. And property tax increases are limited to a maximum of 3% year over year.
With the tax landscape drastically altered by the loss of itemizing deductions for state and local taxes, these Floridian incentives are well worth your consideration.
