Florida Democrats are proposing a law that would require HOAs to donate 15% of their dues money to charities in the community where they are located. The bill text is found here. (pdf warning)
This amounts to a 15% tax placed on the backs of all property owners. What this means is that all HOAs in Florida would have to increase their association dues. This will increase the costs of housing for everyone in the state. Even renters.
Democrats: they hate property owners. They hate America. The only groups that they like are sexual deviants, criminals, and illegal immigrants.
So how do you fight this, should it pass? The law doesn’t specifically say what organizations that the donations have to benefit. This is what it requires:
Donate or use at least 15 percent of the association’s total annual income to benefit the community in the county in which the community served by the association is located.
What constitutes a “benefit the community”? Perhaps using it to donate to a progun group, establishing firearms safety courses, or some other pro-liberty cause. I mean, increasing gun ownership benefits the community, at least in my opinion.
