    I have only the1 acre lot with my house on, so I will get no tax breaks for my 27 hives and 20 nucs. Guess I will have to continue to pay my $200. bucks a year property tax without any respite. Woe is me.

    Haraga they had my property accessed at 20K an acre now 1 1/2 acres is accessed at $650 the rest of the property stayed at the higher assessment. I don't remember off the top of my head what that lowered the tax bill but it was noticeable. I think our millage rate is around 11%

    Corporations are nothing but thousands of individual shareholders who own stock in a company. Most of the shareholders of these multinational companies are the pension plans of individuals and unions that people like us belong to. The less these corporations pay in taxes the higher the value of my 401 k.

    Still on the other hand people here in FL plant row upon row of pine trees and get one. Pine trees are not a very engaging line of work, but if that Pine trees counts, then certainly there ought to be a way to make a bee endeavor work.
    pine trees for timber sales

    well there already are some standers if your trying to make money from bees. check out Fl. right to farm act. And it's not an exemption it's a land classification

    In your state of CA I would figure out anyway to not pay taxes. They are so broke it is not funny.

    My whole goal in life is to figure out how to give the man as little of my HARD earned money as possible legally. So when you say pay your fair share. I pay what I am legally obligated to and no more. The reason why the rich pay less is because they are smarter or can afford to pay smarter people. I strive to be smarter so I strive to be richer. Everyone has got to have a goal. Our Governor spent like 80k to refinish her desk so I work to make sure she cant afford the wax they use to buff it. I will donate the wax to her but,wont pay for it.
