Re: Tax Exemption Status of the National Society
of the Colonial Dames of America in the
State of Florida


Your letter of January 30th received.

As you know, the Tax Assessor determines whether
or not the real property in question is entitled to
exemption. His determination is subject to review
by the countyy Commissioners sitting as a Foard of
Equalization. The Comptroller does not have the
authority to make such determination.

The letter of the Attorney General you refer
t(; is an official opinion, No. 062-6 and was ren-
dored at my request as the Tax Assessor had asked
this office for advice.

In the instant case, if the Tax Assessor de-
sires the advice of this office and will write us
a letter and we are uncertain as to the advice to
be given, we will ask the Attorney General for an
official opinion.

Very sincerely yours,
Hon. Percy H. Palethorpe, RAY E. GREEN,. COMPTROLLER
Tax Assessor
Hon. R. D. Hill,
Tax Collector Lewis H. Tribble
General Counsel
