Times editorial on the FTBRC

Just thought I’d share today’s Time’s editorial with you, where they mention some questions that the Florida Taxation and Budget Reform Commission should bring up. Below are the debate questions they pose, with the second being of concern to our industry.

Among the questions the commissions should debate:

  • How could voters be enticed to give up Save Our Homes for a fairer property tax system?
  • What is the best way to close sales tax exemptions and tax services to broaden the tax base?
  • How could some of that money be used to uniformly reduce property taxes?
  • What is the smartest way to provide property tax relief for businesses, owners of investment properties and renters who would get little or no benefit from the amendment approved by lawmakers?
