Why did my tax bill go up?
The state homestead tax relief grant that has given you a credit on your homesteaded property tax bill will not be available on your 2009 tax bill. The legislature passed House Bill 143 that removed this grant and provides to make it available again if state revenues grow at least 3% plus the rate of inflation.
