TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! SECRETIVE PLAN TO REPLACE FADING KANSAS CITY E-TAX REVEALED: RAISE PROPERTY TAXES!!!
The longstanding Kansas City Earnings Tax is out of favor and on the way out.
The Missouri GOP have targeted the E-tax for elimination and Jeff City seems willing to do what KCMO voters would never dream: Cut the biggest, single source of revenue funding City Hall.
The reality is that it's just a matter of time before the E-tax is history.
Created in 1963, at the time the tax was a progressive effort to improve the city and provide greater services.
Now, the E-tax has become a symbol of regressive and unfair local government levies in need of reform.
That's not to say the E-Tax isn't popular. In every election to renew the tax, KCMO voters have passed the levy by EPIC double digit margins. Now the GOP is getting tired of losing and wants to finally conclude the debate in a voting environment they control.
Here's the word from a TOP ECHELON KCMO INSIDER . . .
"Everyone panics when we talk about eliminating the e-tax. 40% of the General Fund up in smoke. It'll take a decade to phase it out and already we're seeing what the aftermath looks like . . . KCMO will continue to raise taxes and voters don't seem to care. Yes, the earnings tax is regressive but what's in store seems far worse . . . "
The kicker . . .
ALREADY UNDERWAY, THE PLAN TO REPLACE THE E-TAX IS SIMPLY TO SPIKE LOCAL PROPERTY TAXES!!!
Here's how it works . . .
Local politicos and the ruling class elite simply find a cause everyone loves and attach a never-ending property tax along to it.
A highlight that should be noted . . .
EVEN SHOW-ME INSTITUTE TAX FIGHTERS HAVE LOST THE MORAL HIGH GROUND AGAINST PROPERTY TAXES BECAUSE THEIR HONCHO CROSBY KEMPER III BACKED THE LIBRARY TAX!!!
Now Kansas City Public Schools want a property tax increase despite their FAIL over more than a generation.
And even worse . . .
COWTOWN IRONY: THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROPERTY TAX WILL EARN SUPPORT FROM KANSAS CITY DESPITE THE FACT IT ACTUALLY MAKES HOUSING LESS AFFORDABLE!!!
TKC was the 1st to show Councilman Scott Wagner working on a property tax scheme against the advice of his campaign staff.
And so, as earning and sales taxes are now deemed regressive and have fallen out of favor . . . Hitting up property owners is the last piggy bank to break and part of American big city income redistribution trending overall.
