Leonard J. Accardo v. Gregory Brown
Mr. Accardo and others challenged the legality of property taxes levied on their beach homes, which are located on government land under leases lasting up to 99 years. A trial court agreed with Mr. Brown, the county property appraiser, and other county officials that the property was subject to property taxation. The First District Court of Appeal upheld that decision but certified the issue as one of great public importance for this Court's review.
