Taxes...
January 08, 2014 | 03:49 PM

We all know taxes are a sensitive subject. If taxpayers are confident that their government (local or federal) is spending the revenue wisely, then most would not have an issue with it.

We all MUST remember that taxes come from OUR money. It's not something that governments are entitled to. I do favor the elimination of Personal Property taxes, even if they are mainly levied on businesses. I do think we should be very judicious in the lucrative practice of handing out tax abatements to businesses to lure them here. One business that comes to mine is a local business (furniture mfg) that's now gone after receiving the benefits of a generous tax abatement. They made quite a deal, and then moved all their production off-shore, and left town. There needs to be a legal accountability applied to all tax abatement deals.
