$283,070 tax bill voided in Martin County: Surviving spouse not obligated to refile homestead

From JD Supra Legal News: A husband purchased a residence in Martin County in 1985 and applied for and received homestead exemption…

After learning about the husband’s death in 2012, the property appraiser sought to collect $283,070.45 for additional taxes due to the reversal of homestead status from 2007 to 2011, plus a 50% penalty and 15% interest per year, since the wife never applied for homestead in her own name.
