Florida Property Tax Amendment and Florida Association of Realtors (FAR)

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.

 

call to action 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.

I think FAR is out of touch with their own Realtor base.  I haven't spoken to anybody who wants to support this proposed amendment.  Every Realtor I have spoken with thinks the amendment is a terrible idea.

Rob- I'm hearing very mixed responses. But it doesn't look like it's even going to make it onto the February ballot anyway. As usual, our elected officials drug their heels and now our property values will continue to fall until this situation, among others, is resolved.
