    Beware don’t miss the deadline! The mayors and the property tax departments system is to increase the budget with tricking and then trapping people into higher tax classes. It already happened to hundreds of owners of condos in mixed use buildings. See this report on Hawaii News Now about an owner who even had to sell her property. http://www.hawaiinewsnow.co
    And this year they even changed the system so that all the condo owners in those building have to dedicate their use of the property for 5 years. Not even a sale will change the status. Do you see the pattern ?!
