How much is the property tax? Is it calculated based on purchase price or another valuation method?

This might be eligible for a deedback. Have you checked out the deedback thread in the Vistana board?

That must be very frustrating, SteelerGal. Did Vistana give you a reason for the denial? I've heard they were not taking EOYs in the past, but one person reported having an EOY just recently accepted for deedback. Hope they accept your week this time!

I just saw the same. I put in a new request so I hope the TS Gods will smile on me.

Assuming you paid MFs for 2020, it may very well happen this time. They denied my biennial WMH deedback request last fall, but after I paid my MF and tried to give it away in December, they took it by ROFR. They're slow-walking the closing now.

Does that mean Vistana exercised ROFR at $0?
