Property tax battles are heating up all over the country, and this time politicians are taking notice.
The mayor of Indianapolis was recently defeated because of increased property taxes, but there was even more drama when Marion County treasurer, Michael Rodman, not only listened to protestors, but joined them.
That’s because his own property tax bill had jumped 80 per cent.
Where will it all end?
Florida, Washington State and California have been added to the list of more states in property tax turmoil.
So here are our questions. Has everyone finally reached the breaking point? Are politicians getting the message that they can no longer view property taxes as city ATM machines?
Maybe we could put it a different way. Which ones really want to stay in office?
