Florida Property Taxes about Average in State Comparison

But unlike 27 other states, Florida doesn't have a tax on vehicles, nor does it have a state income tax. And the weather is pretty good too!!!

WASHINGTON – February 28, 2018 – Each year, the average American household spends $2,197 on real-estate property taxes, plus the residents of 27 states pay an additional $436 for vehicle property taxes.

The tax burden in Florida, however, is much lower. It has no state income tax, for example, and residents pay $0 each year in vehicle property taxes. While that puts a greater burden on property taxes, the property tax burden isn't high or low as the state ranks 27th out of 50 states and the District of Columbia.

In order to determine who pays the most relative to their state, the personal-finance website WalletHub released its 2018 Property Taxes by State report, which compares home and vehicle taxes across the nation and features insights from a panel of experts.

  • Real-Estate Property Tax Rank: No. 27

  • Real-Estate Tax on Median U.S. Home Value: $1,885
  • Vehicle Property Tax on Best-Selling Car: $0.00

WAWA store

I'm hearing that the City is pushing WaWa to build a smaller store, than they are accustomed to..and that plans are now on hold..

Sorta like Sonic, where they insisted on a larger retention pond, which cut the parking spaces down to not worthy of a standard store size??

Anything out there??
