I just finished sending letters to our state representatives, regarding the upcoming legislative session, where our dire tax issues will be discussed. If you live in Florida, it's imperative that you contact your local representatives as soon as possible!
I received this message from the Daytona Beach Area Association of Realtors....
With the 60 day session scheduled to conclude next week on May 4th, legislators need to hear that comprehensive property tax reform for commercial and residential real estate is needed NOW, during the regular session.
The House continues to push for a property tax/sales tax swap but the idea is flatly opposed in the Senate. Governor Charlie Crist recently indicated he does not support a sales tax increase, but wants more relief than what the Senate proposes.
As many of you as possible need to contact your local representatives and describe to them the lock-in effect of the Save our Homes Act (Volusia County) or lost home ownership dreams due to high property taxes! Click here to take action
