Fight Jackson County Over Property Taxes And REMEMBER To Vote Against Incumbents

Denizens of the Courthouse hope that the public won't remember property tax spikes at a rate of 100-500% . . . Here's a look at the resident struggle and inspiration to replace every single member of this legislative body from the top down. Take a look:

Part 4: Fight your property tax assessment

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- Bunny Coker was stunned by her latest property tax assessment. The 77-year-old's home value double from $24,217 to $58,386, meaning her taxes jumped from $472.33 TO $1,084.73 "I nearly fainted," she said. "I mean, my god, how am I going to pay that?"

Sell the house and then buy a house in Beacon Hill where you don't have to pay property taxes for 25 years.

Her taxes did not NECESSARILY jump by the stated amount. The county could reduce the mill levy to generate only the amount needed for the coming fiscal year. That would mean a property tax that is increased beyond that of prior years, but not nearly as large as using the current effective tax rate.

That said, I have no confidence that the County will show the restraint necessary to tax its residents only enough to cover the county's actual needs. Where there is potential money there are pigs at the trough, and Jackson County has plenty of those.

raise taxes=people leave resulting in the need to increase taxes=people leave; its an endless cycle and eventually there wont be anyone left to tax. City Hall and Jackson County needs to tighten the belt and live within a reasonable means; expanding that stupid toy train is something we DONT need but sewers and streets are!

^^^When that happens the city will extend the earnings tax to apply to anyone who has ever visited or driven through Kansas City, or can find it on a map.
