TKC EXCLUSIVE READER REAX!!! EPIC KANSAS CITY TAXES TAKE BITE OUT OF DOWNTOWN EATERY CUSTOMERS!!!



Today's Kansas City municipal election is moving along on according to plan . . .

Just a couple of insights so far . . .

- Morning turnout was predictably abysmal and polling places are mostly abandoned throughout Midtown.

- Really odd that there's not a lot of electioneering and campaign workers handing out ballots for this vote. The lack of a ground game doesn't bode well for supporters of today's questions.

Best of all . . . Here's a bittersweet afternoon snack from our blog community . . .

CHECK THE HUGE PORTION OF KANSAS CITY TAXES SERVED TO DOWNTOWN CAFETERIA PATRONS ALONG WITH OUR BLOG COMMUNITY SPITTING OUT SOME WELL DONE CRITICISM!!!

Checkit:

TKC READER: "Righteous God, look at the taxes downtown now! Going to vote Hell no on every damned issue out of spite today. Greedy city hall swine ... Provide some damned services."

Read it and weep . . . Dining downtown is quickly becoming out of reach for locals given the feeding frenzy of local taxes that only getting worse.



Again, all of this might not seem like a lot but it's a huge bite for anybody on a budget.

This kind of frustration may or may not drive more voters to the ballot box this evening. Polls close at 7:00 PM.

Developing . . .

Let me Google that for you . . . . here ya go:

Now scroll down--that's the down arrow for you by your right hand--and look for Jackson County under "April 2017 Sales/Use Tax Changes". Remember that community children's services sales tax you voted for? Whoa! Turns out they actually imposed it after it won.

You'd think you city hall types would remember this stuff.

That has to be the highest sales tax rate in the US.

We brought this to everyone's attention in 2014 during the failed streetcar expansion effort. A receipt from along the streetcar line was collecting 12.55% taxes and fees.
