It’s that time of the year.
Counties are sending out Truth in Taxation notices, indicating the proposed property taxes for the coming year. Each year I invite people to put some hard numbers to the usual debate on taxes.
Here’s mine. It’s about a 7 percent increase in taxes, which probably won’t go down much when it’s made official after next month’s taxation hearings:
As we’ve found in the past with this annual tradition, the percentage increase sounds worse than the actual increase. The nearly $200 increase for me works out to about $16 a month, and part of that, of course, will be written off on federal income taxes.
Let’s see yours.
