Gave themselves a raise while there is record unemployment. Need any more validation of how shitty gov is when you give them the power to tax?
Nah, they'll set the increase at a level designed to be just beneath the average person's "f*** it I'm leaving" threshold. Someone with a $300k house isn't moving over a $700 annual bill that's part of their regularly scheduled property taxes.I would sell my house eat whatever loss and move f*** that and f*** them buncha d*** bags
That's 700 added to the current tax.Nah, they'll set the increase at a level designed to be just beneath the average person's "f*** it I'm leaving" threshold. Someone with a $300k house isn't moving over a $700 annual bill that's part of their regularly scheduled property taxes.
And the Karen's will be the ones screaming on the FB groups.Yup, coming to a town near you. Yes we have Prop 2 1/2. But we also have excise taxes, income taxes, sales tax, gas tax, license fees (tax), tolls (tax), liquor tax, etc. I mentioned this to my wife a couple of weeks ago. The forced shut down of the economy is going to be very costly to local, state and federal governments because their tax revenues will get crushed. It's coming and there is no way to stop it. If there is one thing that our government is authorized to do pretty much at will is tax us. They will get their money. Massachusetts will be one of the ones to get hit the hardest, and you can quote me on that.

Since everyone can vote, I think everyone should be charged property tax. If you rent, you should get charged property tax and the landlord should get a tax credit. All the landlord has to do is prove that X house is rented for Y and the govt deducts the taxes he paid. If you are renting, you should be asked to file paperwork with the town you rent at so you can get a tax bill and they check that when you do your taxes. The landlord should also have to file a form saying his property is rented so the town can reconcile the records and make sure the tenant is bot playing stupid.
I think that would be fair.
You will see how quickly people stop voting for these as*holes.
When they can't get that 2.6% they want, they just do an assessment and suddenly everyone's house is suddenly worth more and we didn't need a huge tax rate increase after all.THANK GOD FOR PROP 2 1/2 IN MASS
Nailed it... There's principle involved and fine say I can't move will i get that back next year when you balance your budget... I. Sincerely doubt itThat's 700 added to the current tax.
You'd be surprised at what someone would move over. This shows that the government is going to tax the property holders to support everyone else. My property taxes are paid from my AFTER TAX income. That is, I earn a wage, that wage is taxed on a federal and state level, then I have to pay property taxes from the money that's left over after my income taxes have been taken out.
One of the reasons that I left Connecticut was the "personal property taxes" that I was paying every year on my vehicles. The money's part of it, but the principle is more important. I'm already paying taxes on everything I earn - you want to tax me on things that I own? Things that I paid for out of the money left over after you taxed me?
Yeah - I recognize that property taxes support the infrastructure - and I'm okay with a reasonable tax because I use/want the infrastructure. But "reasonable" is an interesting word. 34% increase isn't reasonable in my view.
