Good-bye super exemption

At the request of the state, the Florida Supreme Court has dismissed the state-led appeal of the property tax amendment placed on the ballot in June by lawmakers. That means the amendment giving homeowners a choice between a super-exemption and status quo is dead, done, gone. That leaves the amendment placed on the Jan. 29 ballot as the final deal.

The Miami Herald SABOTAGED the $195,000 SUPER EXEMPTION with LIES and DISTORTIONS because it cut taxes by $4200 a year and would help the real estate market recover! The distortions by Miami Herald reporters included:

1. The SUPER EXEMPTION ended SOH. NOT TRUE...all current homeowners could keep SOH FOREVER under the Super Exemption.

2. The SUPER EXEMPTION only cut $88 from your tax bill. NOT TRUE...The $195,000 SUPER EXEMPTION cut a staggering $4,200 a year in tax.

3. Your taxes would skyrocket under the SUPER EXEMPTION. NOT TRUE...the tax calculator used by The Herald, Palm Beach Post and Sun-Sentinel used a unrealistic 7-10% annual appreciation factor given the market, a realistic 3% factor would have given homeowners a 30 year tax reduction before taxes increased a penny.

4. There is no cap under the SUPER EXEMPTION. NOT TRUE...local government spending WAS CAPPED at 2-3% annual increases under the Super Exemption.

Now The Herald is SHILLING for this WORTHLESS tax plan that DOESN'T CUT TAXES because the news media wants homeowners to continue paying for all the FREELOADERS and DEADBEATS in Florida!

The writter shows a clear insight as to the real reasons why the left is always opposed to tax reduction; they want power with the government not the people. Taxes over and above the real economic value of good and services provided by government just enriches its coffers at the expense of true economic growth and does not provides any long term solution or well being to the community at large. The proposed tax reduction plan is insufficient and unfair.
