The First District Court of Appeal in the state capitol today agreed to fore go its review of a state judge’s decision to strip from the ballot the plan that would eliminate most school property taxes, sending the case to the Supreme Court. The seven-justice body must agree to accept the case and hear arguments.
Last week, Circuit Judge John Cooper threw Amendment 5 off the Nov. 4 ballot, ruling that the summary prepared for voters was misleading about the potential effect the amendment could have on school funding.
Amendment 5 would cut Floridians’ property tax bills by one-quarter starting in 2010. To make up for the lost revenue, legislators would have to boost the state’s 6-cent sales tax by a penny and raise billions more in revenues by closing sales tax exemptions and cutting services.
