Re: Property taxes

Remember also that each illegal going to school cost between 5-10 k and that comes out of property tax.

Re: Property taxes

One little reported cause for tax increase is illegals. Each child that they send to school ( and they tend to be prolific reproducers ) costs a minimum of $5,000 a year (probably much more) in school expense and you know where the school gets their money. If you are an average taxpayer your entire property tax for the year may pay for one illegal child school year. Those least likely to pay property tax are also the most prolific reproducers. By law we must educate those illegals. Imagine 100,000 a month crossing the border, how many will stay in Texas and will you be educating? Tough scenario.

Re: Property taxes

I believe ag taxes are paid at a much lower rate. I remember Michael Dell was trying to get his land in Austin listed as ag property by putting cattle on it. There are many gimmicks used to get lower property taxes. The big companies like Wal-mart and Target fight the assessment every year with big legal teams. Only the poor schnooks ( like most of us ) don't have the ability to fight our taxes. On the other hand we don't have an income tax. What really gets me is that our elected officials brag about keeping the tax rate the same as they raise our property values ( to figures you can't get on the open market ). Death and taxes. We may eliminate death someday but not taxes.
