Taxes, we are retired and have a limited income, which I think should be for our comfort and enjoyment. Taxes are just killing us, especially school taxes. Our tax bill last year was over $1900.00 the school portion of that was in excess of $1200.00, and that is on 30 acres, a modest home a small, old barn and a few small outbuildings. Assessments and/or levies are raised every year they, say they are growing and need more money. They have a new school, only 3 years old, and the biggest expense for the whole structure was for the gym, what extravagant BS. There is a proposition on the April ballot for yet another levy increase. Could there possibly be a more inequitable way to finance schools than property taxes? We had one child that went through this school system almost 40 years ago, but we get soaked (robbed) year after year after year. Folks that donât own a house get away practically free. I know, I checked, our county has all property tax info. on line and available to anyone. Not to bash anyone because they live in a trailer, but, I used deliver to a large trailer court in town and the place is swamped with kids, seems like 3 or 4 in every trailer. I checked the tax records and these people pay next to nothing, most in the $300.00 range. Their overproduction is already subsidized via income tax deductions, and getting gouged to school their offspring is adding injury to insult. I think a small local sales tax increase and a per head tax on the parents for every child enrolled in this district would be much fairer. It may come my to having to find a part time job just to pay the damned taxes, which of course would mean paying more income taxes. Am I way out of line here? Am I wrong for resenting the fact that we are unable to do some of the things we would like to do because of this huge tax burden? Moving is out of the question, my family has lived in this area for over 200 years and our grandchildren are here. And I will save someone the trouble of asking, our grandchildren do not attend the public school.
