REGARDING MUCH NEEDED PROPERTY TAX REFORM:
A crowd of Realtors is expected to gather in Columbia Wednesday to support property tax reform.
The rally and press conference by South Carolina Realtors is set for 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Statehouse, to coincide with the first week of the legislative session.
“It’s time to get our state’s economy back on track and become more competitive with our neighboring states,” says Nick Kremydas, chief executive of South Carolina Realtors, the state’s Realtor trade group.
At the rally, the agents will focus on “point of sale” property tax reform. They will urge the state Legislature to vote yes for House Bill 3272. According to the Realtors group, “the bill aims to fix South Carolina’s broken property tax system, grow our economy and create new jobs.”
More than 300 Realtors have pre-registered to attend the event. The public and media are invited.
“We are urging all property and business owners in South Carolina to attend this event,” Kremydas says.
The agenda includes a South Carolina Realtors member briefing at 11 a.m. at the Statehouse steps, a press conference at 11:30 a.m. and a luncheon at noon on the Statehouse grounds before the Senate convenes at the Statehouse lobby at 2 p.m.
