Governor’s Proposals Added to Tax Comparison Page

Thanks to media reports, I have added Governor Charlie Crist’s tax reform proposals to the comparison page…

Here is a small taste… the page covers all the topics included in the House, Senate, and Governor’s plan.

Portability

House

House Position
New home purchased within two years, legislature may provide for process to derive just value under general law. The new home value must exceed the former home value. The difference between the new home’s just and assessed values can not be greater than the difference between the old home’s just and assessed values. The new homes assessed value will be limited pursuant to the Save Our Homes amendment.PSC PBC 07-09

Senate

Senate Position
New home purchased within two years, legislature may provide for process to derive just value under general law. The difference in value must be less than $500,000, and the new home value must exceed the former home value. The new homes assessed value shall increase 10% per year until it reaches the value it would have been when it was purchased, had it not been reduced (pursuant to general law); after reaching this value, the new home will be limited pursuant to the Save Our Homes amendment.SJR 3034
