<quoted text>Who do you think pays the taxes on that big apt. complex. You think they are exempt? I can tell you know little about the business world and the art of owing rental property. You get a homestead exemption on that modest home but the Apt. owner gets none. Most people are to busy making a living to go horse back riding, play golf, visit an unknown poets home, hang around at the yard sale at the farmers market or have cocktails at the community center. The people who work and own property and still pay high taxes just to keep up all these niceties that is doing the bitching dumb ass.
...but you sure do have a lot of spare time to b*tch and moan here on Topix. Maybe you should go take walk at Meeks Park, it would be healthier for you.

W/O SPLOST home and property owners will foot the bill for the lack of money in the county. Why not let EVERYONE that spends money in the county pitch in and keep the tax rate lower? Oh I forgot! It is the renters and non-homeowners and constant complainers that don't want to pitch in to enjoy all that the SPLOST money pays for.
The excessive spending would not continue w/o SPLOST. It's a ploy to say that property taxes would have to increase an already high levels for a rural county.(Please don't bring up the millage rate. That gimmick is used by politicians that keep the evaluations high.) Give a politician a dollar and he/she will spend it. Ask New Jersey taxpayers if the implementation of an income tax some years ago lowered their property tax any. It did for a few years, just long enough for taxpayers to forget the campaign talk. Now, New Jersey has a state income tax AND high property taxes.

Really stupid thinking. Do YOU not pay the SPLOST all year long? You pay the tax. It amounts to hundreds of dollars a year for you. Just because a few tourist pay too does not justify local residents to raise their own taxes. It's just more to add bigger Government.
Rental property owners pay plenty of property taxes and it is also built into rent rates. We have got the Farmers Market and Community Center so we don't need this tax.
Lamar financed the CC own his on accord without any permission from the people, let him take the consequences. If he raises our taxes because of it, let him suffer the political fallout. We pay either way. We don't need SPLOST.

I don't need a walk. IO get enough exercise doing constructive things. Maybe you should get up off your lazy ass and do the same. Then you wouldn't need a park to go walking.
