Orlando Regional Realtor Association CEO endorses Amendment 2

Please enter your email address here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Amendment Two is an Easy Yes for EverybodyOpinionBy Cliff Long, Chief Executive Officer of the Orlando Regional Realtor AssociationOn behalf of the 15,000 plus REALTOR® members of the Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association, I hope you will join me in supporting Amendment Two on the November ballot. Amendment Two keeps in place the current 10 percent property tax assessment cap on non-homestead properties.Cliff LongThere are several amendments on this year’s ballot that deal with property taxes. Amendment Two does nothing more than keep a reasonable protection in place. It does not change current law, but rather simply makes permanent the existing 10 percent cap on the annual increase in non-homestead property tax assessments that was approved by Florida voters in 2008.If the amendment fails to pass, all non-homesteaded properties will be assessed at their full value beginning January 2019. According to Florida TaxWatch, the disparity between homesteaded and non-homesteaded property taxes is already significant.There are two significant outcomes I ask you to consider should we fail to renew the cap this November. Removing the cap consigns commercial property owners, including many small business owners, to varying degrees of financial uncertainty due to the indeterminate increase in their property taxes from year to year. Higher tax bills ultimately result in higher costs of goods and services. In some cases it could mean a business has to shut its doors.Similarly, since the cap also applies to rental properties, including apartments, any increase in property taxes will undoubtedly be passed onto renters. The overwhelming number of Central Florida residents already struggling to afford their rent leaves no doubt that even a small increase in housing costs would be a devastating blow to residents and the economic health of our region and the state of Florida.Please VOTE YES for Amendment TWO.

HMRC wants views on boosting legacies through reduced inheritance tax

The proposal was announced by the Chancellor at the Budget.The IHT consultation, “A new incentive for charitable legacies”, follows the Budget announcement that estates can reduce their inheritance tax rate by 10% (from 40% to 36%) when they leave a charitable legacy of 10% or more of their net estate.This is designed to act as an incentive to encourage people to leave a charitable legacy, or to increase the amount of an existing legacy, when they die. The consultation looks at how best to implement this policy, which is expected to apply for deaths on or after 6 April 2012.HMRC welcomes views from anyone who has an interest in this area, but particularly from charities and advisers on wills and IHT.Justine Greening, Economic Secretary to the Treasury said: “The Government’s philanthropy package announced at this year’s Budget represented the most radical reforms to charitable giving for more than twenty years and is designed to encourage further financial support for charities. This reduced rate of IHT should provide an extra incentive for people to use their estate to support worthy causes and we very much hope that this consultation will mean we can get the details right so it can make a real difference.”The consultation closes on 31 August 2011.www.hmrc.gov.uk/consultations/index.htm About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Rep. Chu Introduces Bill to Restart Federal Loan Support for Grad Students

first_imgGovernment Rep. Chu Introduces Bill to Restart Federal Loan Support for Grad Students Published on Thursday, December 10, 2015 | 12:59 pm Today, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) introduced the Protecting Our Students by Terminating Graduate Rates that Add to Debt (POST GRAD) Act. The bill would once again make graduate students eligible to receive Federal Direct Subsidized Loans. That eligibility was ended by the Budget Control Act of 2011. Rep. Chu released the following statement:It’s estimated that between 2010 and 2020, 2.6 million new and replacement jobs are expected to require an advanced degree. These are in demand careers like mental health services, school administration, and health care professions that are becoming unattainable due to the high cost of borrowing. The Budget Control Act of 2011 – the same bill that brought us the Sequester – also cut a major means of support for students looking to take the next step towards entering these fields. By adding thousands of dollars in interest payments over the life of a loan, the Budget Control Act added a severe disincentive to students seeking the higher degrees they need.“This bill would fix that by treating graduate students like their undergraduate counterparts and once again making them eligible to receive Federal Direct Subsidized Loans. These loans do not accrue interest while the student is still in school, saving the student thousands of dollars over time. We’ve already started to roll back some of the more irresponsible aspects of the Sequester. This punishing restriction on graduate students should be next. We want the best and the brightest, not just those that can afford it, to have access to postgraduate education. At a time when our country is facing a shortage of specialized workers in critical fields, we should be doing everything we can to encourage students to enter these fields, rather than creating additional barriers to higher education.”The POST GRAD Act is endorsed by: The American Psychological Association, the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the Association of American Universities, the American Association of Medical Colleges, the Association of Public Land-Grant Universities, the American Council on Education, Asian American Pacific Islander Association of Colleges and Universities, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, the UNCF, the National Association of School Financial Aid Administrators, the National Association of School Psychologists, the California State University, the University of California, the American Federation of Teachers, and the National Education Association.

Colorado boy Gannon Stauch’s body found 2 months after going missing; stepmother facing new charges

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(PENSACOLA, Fla.) — The remains of an 11-year-old Colorado boy missing since Jan. 27 were found nearly 1,400 miles away from his home Friday, confirming his family’s worst fears.Gannon Stauch’s body was found near Escambia River Bridge on Interstate 90 near Pace, Florida, by a Florida Department of Transportation construction crew, said Sgt. Rich Aloy of the Santa Rose County Sheriff’s Office. Pace is 15 miles north of Pensacola.The news was devastating to Gannon’s mother, father and younger sister.“They’re distraught with this information,” said El Paso County Senior Deputy District Attorney Michael Allen. “They were still holding out hope that Gannon would come home alive.”The discovery of Gannon’s remains led Colorado’s El Paso County District Attorney’s Office to file nine additional charges against his stepmother, Letecia Stauch, who was arrested for Gannon’s murder on March 2 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Stauch was the last person to have seen Gannon in late January when she told police he stayed home from school. She told them he went missing that afternoon after leaving the family home to play with a neighborhood friend.Surveillance video from that day captured by one of Stauch’s neighbors revealed that she left with the boy in a truck and returned four hours later in what appeared to be an empty vehicle.For weeks, searchers combed fields and streams in the area near Gannon’s home by horseback and on foot with no luck.The new charges against Letecia Stauch include one count of first-degree murder after deliberation and eight counts of committing a crime of violence, an enhanced charge that would be used to increase punishment.“I filed eight counts of crime of violence, for the alleged use of a firearm, a blunt instrument, a knife or other sharp object,” Allen told reporters Friday during a televised news conference.Allen would not elaborate on what he believes happened to Gannon.Florida authorities said they’re assisting with the Colorado investigation to find out if Stauch was in Florida during a specific time, posting to Facebook, “Anyone who has seen Letecia Stauch in Pace or Pensacola, Florida between Feb. 3-5 is asked to call the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 719-520-6666.Stauch’s mother, Landen Hiott, told ABC News that she will bury her son in South Carolina, where he spent most of his life.Letecia Stauch faces life in prison without parole if convicted of first-degree murder.Her next court appearance is set for April 14 in Colorado Springs.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
