TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDER: KANSAS CITY TAX HIKES AMID PREZ TRUMP ECONOMY THREATEN TO RUIN WORKING-CLASS!!!
Rising taxes are the top concern among Kansas City residents right now and tonight A KANSAS CITY INSIDER offers important big picture perceptive.
Here's the word:
"Watching the Jackson County Legislature sit on their hands during this property tax dispute is painful. They're talking a good game but they have the tools to change the policy before it's too late and so far I've sad to say they're done NOTHING.
I remember reading a recent study that quite a few Americans can't afford a $400 emergency expense. This property tax deal is going to be a lot more than that for most residents. It should have been done incrementally and the current tactics could put a lot of people out of their homes.
Add all of this to rising water rates, higher fees from City Hall and a host of other proposed taxes on the way and you've got nearly impossible conditions in KCMO not just for the working poor but people who have decent jobs and consider themselves working or middle-class.
This economy might benefit the elite who have major stock holdings & the 1% but here in Kansas City, elected officials need to realize that most people are getting squeezed by the current Administration and the higher taxes are making it nearly impossible for a lot of our residents to stay in this community."
And so we ask our blog community tonight . . .
ARE RAPIDLY RISING LOCAL TAXES THREATENING TO RUIN ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE PREZ TRUMP ECONOMY?!?!?
