TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – As absentee ballots for the upcoming January 29th election are hitting mailboxes, “Yes on 1 Save our Homes NOW” today announced a number of its outreach efforts to educate Floridians about the Amendment 1 tax cuts.
If you are overwhelmed by high property taxes and want a tax cut, then you should vote Yes on 1, said Governor Crist. Visit Yeson1Florida.com before you cast your ballot and see how Amendment provides a tax cut for homeowners pocketbook.
The group announced several enhancements to its website, YesOn1Florida.com, including a new Citizens Corps section that enables Floridians to download campaign signs, contact local newspapers and show their support for this important tax cut by donating to the campaign. Another new section on the Yeson1Florida.com website enables Floridians to learn more about how the tax cuts might apply to their situation.
Whether you post a sign in your yard or window, write a letter to your local newspaper, forward emails about Yes on 1 to a friend, or just talk to a family member about this important tax cut, you should get involved today by visiting our website, added Senator Mike Fasano, chairman of the group.
In an effort to educate as many Floridians as possible, the group also began mailing an informational brochure to voters across the state highlighting the benefits of the tax cutting amendment. Additionally, this week many homeowners will begin receiving a recorded message from Governor Crist encouraging them to vote Yes on 1 when they cast their absentee ballot.
The system is broken but you have the power to fix the system and lower property taxes for all Floridians, guaranteed by law, Governor Crist said in the recorded message. When you cast your absentee ballot, remember to vote Yes on 1 to double your homestead exemption and make Save Our Homes portable. Stand with me and stand up for Florida, vote Yes on 1!
Broward County Property Appraiser Lori Parrish added, Amendment 1 helps Floridians at a time when they need it most. Amendment 1 is good for our businesses, good for our housing market and good for our economy . . . but most of all its good for our residents.
Governor Crist signed the first part of the tax break into law this June, and Floridians are starting to reap the benefits of the first tax roll-back as local governments are required to reduce tax rates. The second part of the tax break, Amendment 1, will put the people in control of their own pocketbook.
