Florida Real Estate Property Tax Exemptions can be considered the most favorable and arguably better when compared against other states.

While many critics have said that property taxes in the state of Florida are ridiculously high the numbers show that we rank 22, almost the middle of the road for real property taxes nationwide. This blog compares real estate property tax exemptions available to property owners in states with some of the highest real estate taxes in the nation including: New Jersey #1 Connecticut (0 comments)

Lee County Property Taxes - 03/20/08 11:36 AM
Lee County Florida Property Taxes can be confusing at best with all of the recent changes both legislatively and through voter amendment to the state constitution over the past twelve months here in the State of Florida. The first change to property taxes in the State of Florida this year was instituted by the Florida legislature. During the June 2007 session state legislators froze the current millage tax rates as the new millage tax rate cap. In addition they required an additional percentage reduction below the roll back rate. Local governments had to cut additional property tax revenues 3, 5, 7 (0 comments)

Mr. Bernanke suggested reducing principal balances on home loans for mortgage holders who are no longer able to make or stay current with their payments because their homes are no longer worth what they were when they purchased. Mr. Bernanke said many homeowners owe more than the present market value of their home and some see no incentive to keep paying. The Federal (0 comments)
