Florida comes to town; check tax records

Posted By on Tue, Sep 7, 2010 at 10:51 AM

The Arkansas Republican Party is bringing in a Florida resident for a GOP campaign fund-raiser Sept. 19. Maybe they could sit him down for a round of tax-related questions along with gubernatorial nominee Jim Keet.

We're talking, of course, about Mike Huckabee.

The county assessor's records currently show that the Huckabee manse on Silverwood Trail in North Little Rock carries a homestead exemption worth a $350 credit. Presumably, if this hasn't already been corrected on account of Huckabee's move of his legal residency to Florida in April, Assessor Janet Troutman Ward will shortly be making a courtesy call to the former governor to make sure he understands he no longer qualifies for that tax reduction next year. That's the credit Keet erroneously claimed while he was a resident of no-income-tax Florida. (The assessor's office says Huckabee has paid his tax bill due this year, with the credit, but that's perfectly legal. Under the Arkansas system 2010 amounts due are for property owned in 2009 and Huckabee was an Arkansas resident then.)


The Republican Party of Arkansas announced today former presidential candidate and Fox News host Governor Mike Huckabee will be in Little Rock Sunday, Sept. 19 to headline a fundraiser benefiting their 2010 Victory program.

The Arkansas Victory “Families for the Future” Rally will take place in the River Market Pavilion from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and include all-you-can-eat catfish and live music from The Luke Williams Band. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students 18 and under. Kids 10 and under eat free.

Local and statewide candidates will also be in attendance. Advance tickets may be purchased online at www.arkansasgop.org or at the Republican Party headquarters located at 1201 W. 6th St. in Little Rock. Tickets will be available at the event. For more information, please call 501-372-7301.
