The jury returned a unanimous plaintiff's verdict in less then thirty minutes...a total and unambiguous defeat of the Bexar Appraisal District's denial of the affordable housing property tax exemption
San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) March 24, 2012
The Eaton Law Firm, PLLC is proud to announce that Michael W. Eaton has won the first ever jury verdict in a Texas affordable housing tax exemption case. In Case No. 2008-CI-10362, Brompton Community Housing Development Corporation, et al. vs. Bexar Appraisal District in the 45th District Court, the jury returned a unanimous plaintiff’s verdict in less than thirty minutes. The speedy verdict was a taxpayer rejection of the Bexar Appraisal District’s war on affordable housing tax exemptions created for Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDO’s). These tax exemptions allow nonprofit housing organizations to provide housing and services to low and moderate income individuals and families. Michael Eaton has been a national leader in affordable housing legal issues, especially those involving tax and finance aspects of affordable housing, for many years.
