The Florida Municipal Property Tax Exemption Amendment will not appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Florida as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have exempted all property owned by a municipality and used exclusively for public purposes from taxation. Furthermore, the measure would have allowed the legislature to exempt any property owned by a municipality from taxation even without a public use purpose.[1]

The amendment was introduced into the Florida Legislature by Sen. Gwen Margolis (D-35) as Senate Joint Resolution 704.[2]
