Beware all of you who are looking to escape the long arm of the law. My little information birdy was at the Walton County Court House and observed a representative of the Tax Assessor's Office searching through rental ads and a list of over 50 rental websites for this area, including one very close to us. All of the By Owner sites are being combed through as well. My little Birdy says that the rep was looking for tax evaders who rented their property but claimed it as only their personal vacation home. The peeps in the Tax Office told my little Birdy that they have found quite a few people who were claiming homestead exemption on their Florida rental property. I know that everyone on this Board does the right thing, but if you have a "friend" who may be stretching'" the truth, you may, or may not, wish to share this information with them.
