The American dream to be a home owner is still alive but may not be so well. Have you ever taken a real good look at your property taxes and said WTH? The more you pay for your house the higher property taxes or the better the neighborhood the higher the taxes, don’t get me wrong I understand the need for property taxes the part I don’t get is the school taxes tagged onto property taxes. There has to be a better way to handle school taxes because the current method is quite unfair. Consider homeowners that do not have children or homeowners whose children are grown an no longer attend school or consider the homeowner with one child all paying school taxes while a family with one or more children living in an apartment or trailer paying no school taxes. Does this seem fair to you? Could there maybe be something like a child tax to cover school taxes? You know each family has to pay so much for each child they have attending school. The schools already get so much from the State for each child attending. Is there a better way?
