Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Last week, Stuck On The Palmetto’s poll question, "What Do You Think Of Florida's New Property Tax Reform?", got a mixed response:

1 in 4 of them didn't understand it, another 1 in 4 say we need to totally change the way taxes are levied on property, and only 5% said they like the new changes.

I’m a little surprised that only 28 percent of those polled responded that “we need to totally change the system”, but that may be due to the fact that 23 percent admitted that they “don’t understand it.”

We’ll see what happens in January.

What do you think of Florida’s new property tax reform? Leave us a comment and let us know.
