Why are my taxes going up when my market value is going down?
The Save our Homes Cap limits taxable value growth to the Consumer Price Index or to three (3) percent, whichever is lower. Over time, a gap may build between the Save Our Homes value and the market value, such that the Save Our Homes value may increase one year by three (3) percent or less, while the market value falls; however, the Save Our Homes value will never be higher than the market value.

. The tax amount is also a function of the millage rate established by the governing body. Finally, the taxes are paid to a number of jurisdictions, such as Broward County, the School Board of Broward County, the City of Weston, South Florida Water Management District, Florida Inland Navigation District, the North or South Broward Hospital District, and the Childrens Services Council. Any of those jurisdictions may raise or lower the tax rate and therefore impact the total tax bill.
