According to SVC office manager John Caravella, an advisory opinion from Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi in 2013 is his basis for further inquiry. The opinion was issued regarding a similar case in Leesburg.

Seniors Versus Crime sent a letter to GRU attorney Shayla McNeill and to Gainesville Mayor Ed Braddy today asking them to consider refunding customers $10.4 million in potentially improperly collected taxes.

The letter can be read below:
