Tony O's comment this morning over at the Bunker:
Considering the inordinate number of alien BTs transported into Clearwater by their Scn hosts, it also contributes to a sense of an alien nation.
Can anyone state how much property tax revenue is cancelled out by church property? My understanding is they pay tax on property designated as hotel or restaurant but not much else.
That should be backed into their net "benefit to the community" figures.
Net benefit?! That is a hell of a lot of red ink. It better come out as an HCOB= HUBBARD confidence trick to invade and take over and include former mayor Gabe Cazarez's video as evidence.
You just gave me an idea. Make a presentation of a collection of you tube videos on a DVD and stand up at the next council meeting and present it as support for scientology as a community pillar.
It could show Gabe talking about the invasion, Mark Bunker and the Lisa McPherson trust protests and other truths. Put together in a fashion like Alex Gibney's " Going Clear (water)" with a prepaid link to A&E season one " Aftermath".
Go George Gretekos. 1982 Clearwater Hearings is great reference materials available online.
Regular Yearly RE taxes in Pinellas County are about 1%.
Homes are appraised at about half their true value. ( and you pay tax on that appraisal. ) ( If you "homestead" your property, ie: live in it as your primary residence....then your RE tax is about 1/2 again less...what it would be as a rental property or "second home" )
I don't know about Commercial RE.
States that don't have an income tax like Florida tend to tax commercial real estate and increase their appraisals aggressively to compensate. There is a whole industry built up around petitioning against these stellar rate increases and the city probably assesses businesses usurious rates out of the gate in anticipation that most will be challenged but a few putzes will accept it at face value.
This is another negative factor. If Scientology depresses demand for commercial property then the city lacks leverage to increase appraisals on all commercial property. That would be an interesting figure to quantify.
