MIAMI (AP) -- O.J. Simpson is entitled to a homestead exemption on his South Florida home even though he now resides in a Nevada prison.
That's the opinion of the Miami-Dade County property appraiser's office.
A neighbor had asked whether the former football player and actor should continue to receive the exemption.
Department of Revenue rules say a felony conviction does not disqualify a homeowner from receiving the exemption. Nor does temporary absence.
The 63-year-old Simpson was convicted in 2008 of leading a bungled heist to retrieve memorabilia he claimed was stolen by dealers.
