What's Up
Unimproved Leasehold is not subject to ad valorem taxes -

Pensacola Beach, FL, July 22, 2016– The Florida Supreme Court has DENIED the Escambia County Property Appraiser’s attempt to obtain a reversal of the Island Resorts v. Jones decision, making that decision binding precedent for future cases.
The order expressly stated that "No motion for rehearing will be entertained by
the Court."
The Lawyers who won this case, Ed Fleming and Todd Harris of the McDonald, Fleming and Moorhead law firm,  “The Supreme Court’s decision means that Island Resorts will be entitled to an immediate refund of more than $450,000 in taxes paid dating back to 2011.   Two other cases relating back to 2011, Portofino v. Jones and Beach Club v. Jones, remain pending before the First District.   Those two appeals were stayed pending a ruling by the Florida Supreme Court.
    Levin Rinke Realty Broker/Owner, Robert Rinke has worked to keep beach residents informed on property values and taxation issues on Pensacola Beach. He said, “It is vitally important to me that all of the leaseholders on Pensacola Beach that are currently eligible for this substantial reduction in double taxation are fully educated and take advantage of this legal verdict.”
