Protests have followed the receipt of higher property tax rate notices in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. On Thursday afternoon, a group calling itself Fair Property Tax For All coordinated a series of protests at three sites in Miami-Dade County, and many Broward residents in cities facing high increases have echoed that anger. Hollywood, Miramar, Parkland, Pembroke Pines, West Park and Weston have proposed increases of at least 20 percent to compensate for plummeting assessed property values.
