This is the part that got me wondering:
"Furthermore, the amount received from general property tax from real estate is predicted to decrease from an estimated $82.39 million for the 2009 fiscal year to $68.85 million the following year."
Nothing in the article explains why TPS is projecting a $13.54 million REDUCTION in real estate taxes.
Is it because a levy is expiring? Is it because of some change in the law? Is it because they expect the value of properties to decrease which would lower the amount they collect through the inside millage?
Inquiring minds want to know...
