TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY PREPS TO CASH IN ON JACKSON COUNTY PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT CRISIS!!!
Behind the scenes, City Hall is licking their chops and prepping to divide up the influx of revenue that will arise from disproportionate Jackson County property tax increases . . .
To wit . . .
SPECIAL THANKS TO TKC TIPSTERS FOR THIS EARLY LOOK AT CITY HALL MOVING TO CASH IN ON JACKSON COUNTY PROPERTY TAX HIGH DRAMA!!!
Now, a few City Hall bureaucrats have FAKED this as an effort to even out revenue but the implication is far more sinister.
Here's the word about the latest unsigned ordinance . . .
"Adjusting tax levy rates is just an inside baseball term for 12th & Oak unhinging their jaw in order to feast on all of the cash that the Courthouse is going to generate for them. It's simply misdirection to talk about this as a preventative measure and they've already tricked most of the reporters in KC. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out that KCMO desperately wants this cash and they're rigging the rates to put it where it's needed most . . . The General Fund, Health Fund, General Debt and Interest Fund, and Museum Special Revenue Fund. Even worse, the line about "recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date" makes all of their actions nearly untouchable by voters.
Check the ordinance sneaked into an upcoming session . . . Here's a slide showing KC LOOKING FORWARD TO THE MAX!!!
Here's the timeline for KCMO to engage in the cash grab as quickly as possible.
And so, whilst taxpayers have focused their property tax ire of Exec Frank White and The Courthouse, it's worth noting that this scandal extends even further and a bevy of local government agencies stand to benefit from a cash influx that threatens drive working poor people out of their homes.
