Grassroots effort to reduce Florida property taxes

Florida House Speaker, Marco Rubio, has endorsed Cut Property Taxes Now a grassroots petition to do something serious about reducing property taxes.  Since Governor Crist and Senate President Ken Pruitt do not have the will nor the guts to do anything significant on property taxes, this grassroots effort might be a good alternative.  The plan is pretty simple.  Put an amendment on the ballot for November 2008 to make ad valorem property taxes capped at 1.35% of the assessed value of the property with all existing exemptions staying in effect.

I did some quick math on some of my properties and this would cut my taxes by about 20-30%.  Now that is more like it! 

The website is http://www.cutpropertytaxesnow.com/.  They have a petition that you can fill out online.

Armando - It sounds like a pretty good proposal.  The time frame to get it on the November ballot is limited, so let everyone know about it.
