We have not had a press release about it but I guess the town needs money for a lot of things because they have been out auditing properties....I hate to see the tax increase for this time around since every thing I plant costs me more money.

Yes I had heard that the federal government was going to put a stop to property taxes for two years but apparently that did not go over well.

When I read your title I though to myself, Sure do. It just happens to be your district. They made had some problems a few years ago that now all of us are paying for. It sucks. but I think that tax increase it insane. How much are you paying in taxes now?

Our town already has crazy high property taxes. Our school gets lots of money but we have something called the robin hood law here. The law allows other school districts to take our surplus money. Which means high property taxes here and people in areas who pay lower taxes get the extra our town pays.
