HAHAHAH, you are right. I should have more clearly described my example. There has been NO tax cut property tax cut; the tax money collected by the state is being used to pay for the items our property tax once paid for. RINO Hoeven started the shift and his buddy Dalrymple continued it. But, once the state coffers are gone, property taxes will skyrocket because, as you say, bills have to be paid. When the state money is gone, your city is NOT going to do with less and the only place to get their money to make up the difference is the taxpayers' pockets.

as mentioned, property taxes really didn't go down. just the source of where the money came from changed. However, that change is only for two years. So get strapped in people, in two years your going to get spanked with those taxes again and the valuations will have gone up probably in the neighborhood of 20%. It's the old smoke and mirrors show. Don't say we didn't warn you. This is nothing more than a dog and pony show to try to prevent people from voting for abolishing property taxes. And obviously there are some people that are too stupid to see what is happening. What a pathetic situation.

It is amazing how short sided some people are. If I pay your heat bill for a year, does that mean that your actual heat bill went down? No. It means it was not paid by you, but by some one else, in the place of property tax, that would be the state.

Property taxes were reduced only because the state 'bought' a portion of the property tax and paid it for the schools. There is nothing about actually reducing taxes. Will the state always be able to pay our portion of the property tax? Or will we be slapped with a HUGE increase in property tax when the state can no longer afford it? Also, with all the tax collected by the state, there was NO mention of tax reduction. Or are they stockpiling for all future property tax?

Skyrocketing Property Taxes? My property tax was significantly reduced this year and I know that this was the case in general.I do feel it is funny that I have not seen one mention of this fact throughout the numerous comments about taxes, Give the state a little credit where it is due.
