Yes, it was in today's Daily Sun, page A12. The Villages Daily Sun ... an excellent source of local news.

Isn't this the first tax increase for them in 15 years?

I'm still not happy with a +20%, but I understand.
Oh de you did it again, you went and got facts, you bad boy. Did the same and it is a lot to read, to most it would be boring but the old accountant in me got a perverse pleasure from doing the audit. We would agree, not happy with the 12% increase ours came out but we do see the reasons for the increase.

We question whether people would have been happier if taxes went up over the last years that it went down. Do people think they would be better off? There is an old saying PAY ME NOW OR PAY ME LATER. Also there are two guarantees in life, Death & Taxes. Always like your post, keep it up you bad boy!

That's what I said would happen. Not nearly as much as rumored.

Not exactly. The county tax is going up about 25% but the school tax is essentially unchanged. The county tax is about the same as the school tax. Therefore, the total tax increase (county + school) is about 13%. This is the number mentioned in post #25 and #27.

The county tax is going up 25%. That's where the whole episode started and now has apparently ended. No one said anything about total taxes. The conversation has been limited to county taxes from day 1.
