TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDER: PAY JACKSON COUNTY PROPERTY IN PROTEST!!! MISSOURI REPUBLICANS READY TO CRACKDOWN ON COURTHOUSE!!!
The situation at the Courthouse is reaching a horrific climax as many locals will open their mailboxes today and receive one of the single-greatest tax increases in Kansas City history.
Accordingly . . .
JACKSON COUNTY INSIDERS ADVISE LOCALS TO PAY IN PROTEST!!!
There's actually precedent for this move built into the Missouri Law . . . 139.031. Payment of current taxes under protest — action, when commenced, how tried — refunds, how made, may be used as credit for next year’s taxes
Whether it's a legal complaint, signature line sign off or continued voter trolling of Jackson County politicos via social media . . . Here's the bottom line:
In the coming days Jackson County residents will be hit with a tax bill so extraordinary and disproportionate that hundreds of people will realize they will no longer be able to afford home ownership. Other will simply have their holidays ruined by a horrific cost of living increase that's only going to get worse.
Property will double for most Kansas City residents and hit poorer neighborhoods worst of all.
This is the most important issue in Kansas City history and threatens to impact the local discourse in a truly transformative manner i.e. the days of generous voters considering more levies, borrowing and costly initiatives for good causes are now finished.
Meanwhile, we hear former City Manager Troy is actually closer to accepting a high paying county gig . . . The richest deal in Courthouse history.
The only hope . . .
JEFF CITY REPUBLICANS ARE MOVING TO LIMIT THE DAMAGE AND CUT FRANK WHITE'S PURSE STRINGS!!!
This is important for a lot of reasons but mostly because Missouri Republicans will play the role of heroes, tax fighters and champions against the widespread perception of municipal corruption.
Meanwhile, what we know for certain is that Frank White's legacy is no longer highlighted by old school World Series baseball glory days but instead dominated by his complicity in taxing Kansas City homeowners into oblivion.
