Well, we are now in Oregon, in Columbia County. We just had the shocker of our life. We were told the taxes on the place we just bought would be $1362.00, like OK.. we can deal with that. Then I get a call yesterday and they said it is going to be $3600 a year!! Other than the house and land there are no improvements on the place, not even a garden. It is not a big house,, and it sure is not plated in gold. Oregon used to be not too spendy a place to live in,, but sure is not the case any more. That is a lot of extra money to come up with. DH was going to build me a little 4 stall barn next summer, and a Hen house, but I do not know if we can afford to do that if they are going to levy a high tax on those too., Ack~~~~ They sure make it hard to have a small Farm. You would need the Goose that lays those golden eggs to make ends meet. Sigh ~ ~ Other than that,, oh,, and the well.. the place is nice.
