RE: [tips_and_tricks] Constitutional Apportionment
- Tnavyah --
The Constitution limits the fed govt and not the States. The Constitutional
limitation regarding apportionment relates directly and exclusively to fed
taxation, and NOT to State taxation. You need to review your State
Constitution for any limitations on State or county taxes.

Subject: [tips_and_tricks] Constitutional Apportionment
What are the limitation of Constitutional Apportionment as it reffers to the
appilcation of ad valorem property tax. There seems to me to be a big
disparity in how the state of Florida or for that matter all of the states
apply ad valorem real property tax. The tax is applied to real property
owners and they are taxed according to the value of their property. If they
do not pay the tax they lose their home. The people who do not own real
property are either not taxed or if they are and do not pay they lose
nothing.Also the counties give a lot of exemptions.
There are many other problems with real property ad valorem taxes.
For example I just enclosed my garage. I did not increase my property only
it's value. Now my tax has been increased. I put a shed in the back yard .
Now my tax is increased again. My neighbor who has the same property size
and lives next door. He does not improve his propety in any way. His ad
valorem property tax does not increase.
If there is a way to be FAIR as to all the population of the county please
let me know. If not, then what are the alternatives?
