Joe Texas =Taxes.....
Man, Everything is BIG in Texas............  
 
Including Taxes...................  
 
What I mean is the central apraisal for homes seem to constantly climb here in Texas every 2 years seems they go up by at least $300.00 more on my home taxes  
 
Now up to $2703.00 for the year. I have a small home too. 1251 square feet total.  
 
Any one else in this boat??? Lets here from all who are getting (raked over the coals) by the CAD setting constantly hi taxing on homes!

Lord knows I don't have to worry about taxes, but from what I've heard the reason property taxes are going through the roof is because the federal government is cutting taxes and shifting the burden of paying for services to the states, which results in said higher property taxes.

They have a sales tax instead,which I think is more fair to working people but seems to be abused by the wealthy.

how can sales tax be abused? it's not like you can refuse to pay sales tax.

Depends on your definition of fair, I guess...

Sales tax is very regressive. Folks who make enough to save some don't pay it on what they save. However folks who live hand to mouth pay it on every penny. not fair to working people by my reckoning.
