But it was okay for everyone to pay school taxes while your kids were in school?


I never had kids, but i've been paying for all your little turds for over 50 years. My stinkin property tax this year is over $16,000! And that's with homestead. That said, vote YES on not allowing them to have a state tax!!!

Please explain what you think a flat tax is?

That is a myth. Renters pay property taxes. It is included in the rent you charge. Line 16 Schedule E "Taxes" is one of the expenses you pay with the money you collect from renters.

That's right. What about apartment renters?

It is line 16 on Schedule E, this is one of the expenses the owner of the apartment pays with the money collected from the renter. If apartments did not have property taxes, rents would be cheaper.

Yep. Apartment renters, house renters. They pay property taxes.

No more taxes, period!

Don't believe any politician who will lower one tax to create another. Next thing you know you're all still paying high property tax (because they have now over appraised your house or never lowered it to what they promised) and they are raising your new income tax within a couple years that you all wished for (for some special interests of theirs.). Texas is already one of the highest property tax rates in the nation, 3rd highest in 2018 here: https://www.thebalance.com/best-and-worst-states-for-property-taxes-3193328

Did everyone see the texas online sales tax that took effect on OCT 1. I had never heard of it, never seen anything on news, nothing. Guess that one snuck in.

Thanks for the heads up EJ.

I did the math several times before and after we moved here. Each time I determined that the high Texas property tax and tolls (toll roads) is far less than what I would have paid in Missouri (25% to 33% less!).

I personally like the higher property tax and 0% income tax system. If you don't want to pay a lot of taxes, then don't buy a bigger house. In Missouri I had no control over the amount I paid... the state took 7% of every paycheck regardless of the lifestyle choices that I made.

Yes, If you have kids in school you should pay school taxes, if you are not using the school then you shouldn't have to pay or at least pay a reduced amount, I don't have any kids in schools and pay about 7K per year to pay for baby sitting service via public school tax.

You know that you can file a home stead and reduce your taxes and you can also go and challenge the rates and get them reduced.

That's two numbskulls in a row. So you would trade one tax for another.
