Property tax debate

Here’s one of our favorite county commissioners, Katy Sorenson, expounding the local view of the property tax conundrum. If her math is right, killing the property tax will benefit the wealthy more. What else do we expect from a Republican-dominated state legislature?

She’s also pointing out that the state can’t really kill the property tax. About half of it is imposed by local bodies like the school district and bond-debt service.

And talk about enjoying a tax cut -- I just cashed my $300 refund from being a Miami Beach homesteader. Makes me feel like a pioneer.
