Bonita Springs Property Tax Rate to Remain Unchanged

Posted by Benjamin Dona on Tuesday, October 6th, 2009 at 3:25pm.

Bonita Springs Property Tax Rate NewsThe Bonita Springs City Council has agreed to keep its tax rate the same as last year. The 2009 tax rate will be 82.73 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. That's great news for Bonita Springs homeowners, who will likely see a 17% decrease in their property taxes.

When you add in the fact that the Lee County Property Tax Rates are also going to remain unchanged, 2009 is going to bring a welcome relief to area residents stung by recent years rising real estate taxes.

In addition, both the City Council and the County Commissioners reduced spending accordingly in order to make up for the short fall in tax revenues. Fortunately, both groups were able to focus their cuts on areas that will not decrease services or have a major impact on residents in general.

Taxes should be going down here in Vegas as property values have plummeted but strangely they haven't... I guess they figure no one will notice they are over taxing the people actually paying them.

It's encouraging to see that both the city and county agreed to reduce spending rather than continue the trend of raising taxes every year. And a decrease in property tax never hurts in this economy.

No doubt about it. We're lucky to have some sane and conservative county commissioners and city council members here.

Yes, I agree with Cary that the taxes have to be decreased so that people can repay their mortgages at a lower tax. At this time of scenario in the housing market, the commissioners in Bonita Spring are doing a great job.
