Relating to the authority of certain persons to defer or abate the collection of ad valorem taxes on a person's homestead.
Specialized tax laws designed to benefit one preferred class of people to the exclusion of others is a violation of limited government.We support a tax system that is low rate, broad based, and treats everyone equally. For this infringement on individual liberty, we oppose HB 217. We would withdraw our objection if the bill were amended to make the benefits of this legislation broadly applicable to all taxpayers.
