Celebrate The Mayor Sly James Shell Game Kansas City Property Tax Break!!!
Here's today's propaganda that most news outlets are ignoring but we think deserves a bit of attention because it's so brazen . . .
MAYOR SLY'S PROPERTY TAX BREAK IS BASICALLY A SHELL GAME GIVEN THAT HE HAS INCREASED KANSAS CITY TAXES ALMOST HALF A DOZEN TIMES DURING HIS TENURE!!!
Furthermore . . .
MAYOR SLY'S PEOPLE ARE DOING TELEPHONE POLLS RIGHT NOW IN ORDER TO RAISE TAXES AGAIN IN KANSAS CITY!!!
This effort is nothing more than propaganda plain and simple and relies on local voters staying home or being completely misinformed by the newspaper that reports this garbage without asking a single question.
Here's the presser for stupid people . . .
Mayor James fulfills pledge to reform the City’s tax code
Changes result in lower property taxes for Kansas City, Missouri residents
Residents recently received property tax bills for the 2013 calendar year and those payments are due on December 31st. Today, Mayor Sly James announced that as a result of the approval of Question 1, which appeared on the August 2012 ballot, some property taxes will not appear on that bill, which could lead to savings for most residents.
During that election, voters were asked to approve a ½ cent sales tax to fund our Parks and Recreation department and help create a dedicated street maintenance fund for the first time in our City’s history. To offset that burden, the City would reform our tax code by eliminating three different property taxes: the trafficway maintenance tax, the park and boulevard maintenance tax, and the boulevard front foot assessment. For example, residents with a home valued at $200,000 and a vehicle valued at $35,000 would see tax relief in the amount of $92.17. Additionally, the $12.50 motor vehicle fee was not renewed as part of that vote.
“I want Kansas Citians to know their government kept its promises and is being efficient with their hard-earned tax dollars,” said Mayor Sly James. “That’s what trust is all about.”
