Unless the other homeowners who dont get the big tax protection that older SOH homesteads get find some relief from these abusive property taxes, the days of SOH are numbered.

Why should people who are paying exhorbitant taxes on inflated property values care to protect their neighbors who are getting a free ride?

The number of people who get big tax protection from SOH declines every year now that home prices have spiked up to absurd levels due to deaths, movings, divorce etc. The number of those paying full assesments grows every year.

Plus adding 400 bucks a month to your mortgage payment just to pay property taxes for a median priced home is hurting the real estate market

This is the best suggestion short of just abolishing the coercive and abusive property tax once and for all.

The problem in a nutshell. And paying property taxes amounts to renting our homes from the county.

I saw that a house I sold in wellington's taxes are $16,000.00 now

I paid $3200/year when I owned that house in 1999-2001 Homeowners was high even then. Nationwide was 6K a year.

Now I have to think it's close to 30 G's a year for taxes and insurance? 30 G's?

Cmon now....

It is improperly written and unconstitutional, if a good lawyer willing to work for this exists, the "save our Homes" can be declared unconstitutional. The sudden reassessment of millions of properties would create a demonstration so powerful that the system would be reformed, quickly! I know just the case to overturn 'save our homes'. MINE!!!
