FL Property Tax

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)

The Republican governor Friday proposed three additional state
constitutional amendments and another law.

Legislation and an amendment passed in 2007 and 2008 helped cut
property taxes an average of 3 percent annually after a stream of
increases.

One proposed amendment would put spending caps on local
governments. Another would give breaks to first-time home buyers
and non-homeowner taxpayers. The third would bar tax increases for
primary homeowners if their property values go down.

Crist also is supporting a bill to aid taxpayers who appeal
their assessments.

    I agree with the Governor and hope it moves along without delays. Thank you Governor Crist for reaching out to Florida working families that are struggling and return responsible government to the people. These runaway budgets have strained working families for too long.
