What will Latisha do when her property tax bills suddenly go up 500% over what she can afford?

Byron Funkhouser said...

^^All property is owned by the state. If you don't pay the rent (property taxes), you will be evicted.

Byron Funkhouser who has never owned a damn thing in his life bitching about taxes he don't pay either. Damn why didn't his Dad nut on his ole ladies ass.

I did not think this was possible but Byron puts forth a very accurate description and I agree.
I just retired, home is paid for, but not really. To stay in my home I must set aside approx. $350 a month to cover taxes and insurance. Just a cracker box house. Now that the tax portion is going to double due to a near 100% increase, plus maintenance and so on. It's Going to get rough from here on out and I am lucky to have some savings but when that runs out the state CAN take my property if I can't pay the ever increasing tax at some point.

I am still paying on a bought and paid for house, so it's like rent.

When Melyssa dropped her tailgate I left a load in her bed!!!

Well I guess we can all stop paying taxes and then see what happens around here. No money for cops no money for those who who own nothing but sit on their fat asses looking for free handouts all day.

Our property tax is what's supposed to help keep our city infrastructure we use up and running. Now you see why it pisses me off when it's wasted on crap like changing street names, bike lanes, entertainment dists (P&L & 18th and Vine), unneeded airports, handouts to special interest groups, Folly Trolleys, tax abatements for developers. and supporting losers who won't pay their rent.
