Yesterday I posted a blog about the problem with Florida's property taxes and the Save Our Homes Act.
I just received an e-mail from our local Association of Realtors (Daytona Beach area), and the Florida Association of Realtors (FAR). Asking us to go to FAR's Call-to-Action System and make our voices heard.
One of the new proposed amendments to reduce our property taxes is the Florida Super Homestead Exemption, which would phase out the Save Our Homes Act.
Florida Realtors are being asked to go to the Florida Association of Realtor's Call-to-Action system and request relief for all non-homesteaded and commercial properties. At this point, we would like to see Florida commercial properties re-assessed, based on their "present use" and not on their "highest and best use". This is just common sense and would at least be a step in the right direction.
Stay tuned. I'll keep you updated as we progress.
