Learn more about Property Taxes
Most local governments in the United States impose a property tax as a principal source of revenue. This tax may be imposed on real estate or personal property. The tax is nearly always computed as the fair market value of the property times an assessment ratio times a tax rate. Values are determined by local officials, and may be disputed by property owners. A primary advantage of a property tax over a sales tax or income tax is that the revenue always equals the tax levy, unlike the other taxes, which can result in shortfalls producing budget deficits. The property tax always produces the required revenue for municipalities' tax levies. Property owners, especially seniors, believe the tax is unfair and does not represent the owner's ability to pay.

Yes, and decrease government spending especially for military. The US spends more on military than all other countries combined. This should not be necessary. 4 years ago from a Green in Monument, CO
Yes, but I would prefer a substantially higher income tax, then lower taxes all around; with the exception for taxes on the use of a government service(IE, fuel tax to fund the roads). 4 years ago from a Green in Cuyahoga Falls, OH
State level taxes should be removed, Federal government should pay for everything as to not penalize those who live in low income areas with lower quality public resources. 4 years ago from a Green in Greenfield, IN
Yes, I believe we should move to a more VAT Based tax system like Europe, and eliminate property taxing, it is an unfair practice that can drastically change because of what people build in a particular area. If there is to be a property tax it should... 4 years ago from a Green in Portland, TX
