It is bad enough are Property taxes went up by 25 % in Sumter County But now they are playing Peek-A-Boo around our homes.
The Sumter County emblem on the side of a Chevy Impala is white with small Red lettering to blend in with the car.
There Windows are tinted better than 75% so you can't see who's inside the car (Drivers and Passenger Windows) which the Florida State Law i believe should be no more than 5%.
Why are they Hiding and acting so covert.
I caught them taking pictures of my Neighbors Property's.
I don't like there sneaky tactics and i believe they are not only putting themselves but the public in danger. If the Sumter County Assessors office is willing to break D.O.T. State and Federal Laws what other laws are they willing to break.
Local Government and big brother is watching you!
I don't see anything wrong with a tax appraiser driving by and taking photos of a house. It's their job to estimate the value of houses for tax calculations. And Florida law allows window tinting as long as 28 percent of the light can come through the window.

i don't either.
however it is the entrance of property's without invitation and looking in the windows is a invasion of privacy that i have a problem with.
Also better than 75% tinted windows and not properly marked cars is my complaint.
Has anyone looked at the assessments on Mr. Hooten's property, It doesn't look like he plays by the same rules as he makes us play by.
Better than 4 of his property's are not tax properly either, JMHO FYI for everyone.
Fair taxation needs to be across the board for everyone.

No.... I think it's more like checking behind the shower curtain each time you come home for a murderer.

I would be more concerned if I found some unknown person or persons going through my trash. Just because someone is paranoid doesn't mean people aren't out to get him!

The psa from the head sheriff is...if something doesn't look right, then call them. Have you spoken to your neighbor as well? Maybe what you observed was all on the up and up. Someone else here said that rather than posting on social media to perhaps go to someone in authority for your answers and I concur.

Thank You for your input but it was checked out and indeed it was the Sumter County Assessor vehicle.
My Point is the sneaky way they acquire there information by heavily darked windows and not properly identified vehicles.
I myself do not like Government watching everything we do and the improper behavior of government officials that act in the way they do.
The proof is in the pudding. Just search Hooten's property and see his lack of properly taxing of his own property's.
The Villages residents is paying the brunt of the tax Burdens in Sumter County.
I don't know about you but i certainly don't like being Fleeced by local government!

I don't agree. The Hooten's property is in Bushnell in a rural area. There is a huge difference in prices in available homes in The Villages and outside the Villages. Location is key in pricing of homes everywhere. AND in the appraised value.

I also don't understand your reactions to people just doing their job. Lots of people work for the government.

Found this to be interesting;

What is the difference between assessed value and appraised value? | AccountingCoach

Again for the third time Material Cost, Contractors cost and insurance cost do not change when you leave this area. Hoot*ens home built in 2009 better than 2700 sqft for 100k is prices from the 70"s!

I think you are looking at the property that is his office. They own several pieces of property. What I thought to be his home is somewhere in the 300 thousands. Under Robert and Jennifer Hooten.

I don't know this for sure, just looked at the sumterpa.com under Hooten. It could be an owl family.
