The group Floridians for Property Tax Reform says it's frustrated by how slowly the legislative process is moving, and it's demanding reasonable tax reductions this year.
Maureen France, a Volusia County resident, says her neighborhood is a perfect example of the unfairness of the current tax system. "I’m paying $4,800 dollars a year in taxes. The guy across the street who’s been there 15 years is paying $1,500 and then the guy, the new home that just moved in a few years ago, is paying $5,500. Same house, same neighborhood."
The citizens group is angry about a proposal that would exempt 30 counties from having to provide any property tax relief this year.
