Tax Tangle

Many states have tried tax caps to protect homeowners from getting forced out of their houses because of rising assessments. In "Save Our Home," Maurice Tamman of the Sarasota Herald Tribune shows how Florida's 10-year-old system has created a " snarl of inequities." Tamman describes how identical homes in the same neighborhood can have tax bills that differ by thousands of dollars. The series features an interactive map where readers can look at the property values and tax breaks given to any home in the region.
