Action Needed – Kauai Property Tax Freeze – Council Public Hearing Feb. 11 at 1:30!

Your testimony is needed today.  Please email your support to counciltestimony@kauai.gov

Unless Bill #2574 is passed there will be an automatic tax increase to owner occupied Kauai properties equaling nearly $2,000,000.

Bill #2574  “The purpose of this Bill is to cap taxes with home use exemptions which received substantial increases in their Real Property Taxes (RPT) due to the removal of the Permanent Home Use tax cap, any changes in use, increases in various RPT rates, and recalculation of their property taxes based on current fair market values.”

    Kauai Council, Do nor raise full time resident’s property taxes AGAIN!! We who live her full time are mostly not wealthy but love Kauai enough to call it home. Tax part-time residents and visitors instead! William and Maureen Gregg
