Group defends tax amendment

Kenneth Wilkinson, president of Save Our Homes Inc., says portraying a proposed constitutional amendment as a threat to the homestead exemption is a "scare tactic." He was speaking at a news conference Monday in Tallahassee. The amendment would limit assessment increases on houses with a homestead exemption to 3 percent annually or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. The Supreme Court will hear arguments today on taking the measure from the Nov. 3 ballot if it endangers the exemption.
