The current “increased” property tax millage rate for ALL residents of Sumter County is substantially less than it was 20 years ago!

It’s 33% less than the tax rate they paid 20 years ago!

Why would they be upset?

Why would you feel sorry for them?

The entire counties taxes went up because now the tax payers are paying for this cost instead of the developer. This cost is usually built into the price of the home.
All costs are part of the consideration for the home. Consideration = price paid+ any other liens against the property . If there were no bond program , the developer would have paid out of pocket or with a construction loan and the outcome would be the same.All costs are passed through to the buyer through one mechanism or the other. Any increase in "impact fees will' by definition be passed through to the buyer. Ergo a higher price. I have no quarrel with higher impact fees, but the final result will still be that the buyer pays.

They are paying towards something that is of no benefit to them, and I bet none of them wanted, and the current increase is 25%.
20 years ago is irrelevant.

A lot of folks living in the area have jobs because of TV. Expansion creates jobs.

"If they could, they would raise their prices before the cost increases."

You mean like gas stations?

Jobs. Expanded tax base. Retail stores in their own backyard. Yep, no benefit

Go to the Leesburg FB page and see how many of them are thrilled with all the expansion, and with The Villages.

Many on this thread have agreed with me and many are trustworthy and long term posters who have excellent antennae, and better yet, common sense.
Well why didn't you say so earlier. I can now go to bed knowing the OP is wrong and all is well in The Villages.

The problem is that the prices are not being passed on to the buyers of new homes, the problem is that the costs of expansion are being passed on to existing homeowners.

OK I been reading these posts since they started. I've posted before on the topic. I just pulled up my tax bill since 2009 when we moved here. My taxed with the increase this year are still $51 dollars less then my first years tax bill. Yea I know it's an increase big whop $213 dollars more than my lowest year of 2016 and $213 dollars more than last year. Stop with the 25% increase that would have been $610 dollars then I have something to complain about. Every year more & more things are being added & upgraded that's why we moved here period. A tax increase which is costing me 1 beer a week out more is not an increase period. Yea maybe certain people have been in office to long that's what elections are for but I think and I know I'm going to get beat on for saying this it's a hell of a lot better & 100 times cheaper.

Default Village developer owns Rainey Construction

We were told that The Village developer bought Rainey Constuction.... either way it’s wrong.... the county roads in Sumter county are in horrible conditions and the taxes just increased but the money will be going to make The Village developer even more money... just wrong! Vote them out!
