If Sarasota County voters give the go-ahead on property tax breaks, county officials are warning although they will have balanced budgets for the next two years, shortfalls are likely to follow.

If the pair of constitutional amendments pass in November, it would mean less revenue for the county as well as other areas across the state.

That, officials say, will likely lead to a cut in services or a property tax hike to make up for the lost revenue.
Financial officials within Sarasota County say if the November tax cuts go through, it would lead to a more than $15M budget shortfall between 2020-2023.
