Rick On The Issues
If you think about it, none of us really own our homes. We are all serfs who owe allegiance to the State and local governments. I HATE property taxes. If we do not pay our property taxes, the taxing authorities can foreclose on our homes and they get paid first, even before the mortgage company that may have lent the money to buy the home. With so many Californians moving to Texas, the price of homes and the price of land is rising rapidly. We cannot stop fellow Americans from moving here. Oftentimes, these folks from other states are bringing proceeds from the sale of their high prices properties to buy property in Texas, sometime sight unseen! This also increases everyone’s property taxes because of inflation of land values. Some retirees and folks on fixed incomes can no longer keep their homes because they cannot afford the higher property taxes. In the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, the state of Texas began repealing more and more elements of its property tax, including the state-wide school tax. In 1982, the state completely abolished all forms of state property tax and instead shifted the responsibility for assessing and collecting property taxes to local governments.
We need to eliminate ALL tax on real estate owned, especially those properties that are homesteads. Please understand that in order to eliminate property taxes, the revenue that they generate MUST be replaced by other sources of revenue. School Districts MUST be properly funded. It will be a lot of work to make this happen, but it will be worth it.
