A decision by a Broward County circuit judge ruled that an individual family was only allowed one homestead exemption no matter where the property was located - even if in another state..
The 4th District Court of Appeal in March also ruled that Florida Constitution allows only one homestead property exemption per individual family. The court stated: "The meaning of the Constitution's command that 'not more than one exemption shall be allowed any individual or family unit' appears clear on the face of the document."
The Florida Supreme Court refused a request for an appeal, which allows the ruling to stand.
