    FreedomWorks Florida Supports Property Tax Reform in Florida

    12/19/2007

    FreedomWorks Florida and it’s grassroots army of over fifty thousand citizen activists is working to help bring real, lasting, and fundamental property tax reform to Florida by signing and gathering signatures for the "1.35 percent solution."

    FreedomWorks Florida Field Coordinator Tim Gaitens commented:

    “Property taxes have eroded the economic well being of Floridians. The property tax system has chosen the winners from the losers in the great tax scheme. Our current system has had the impact of extortion for many taxpayers. Business, commercial real estate holders, and part-time Florida residents have all be subjected to paying a grossly unfair, confiscatory property tax. Cheers to Florida Speaker Marco Rubio for leading the charge for reform and taxpayer relief.”

    Ultimately, more fiscal and tax reform is needed to level the playing field and reduce the size of government at all levels. The "1.35 percent solution," will bring a desperately needed first step to fundamental reform would set tax rates for all Florida businesses and residents at 1.35 percent of a property's taxable value.

    FreedomWorks is proud to stand along side of the many citizen based groups who have stepped forward to reign in runaway government. We will continue to promote the principles of lower taxes, less government, and more freedom.
