Does any one out there wonder how our county property taxes increased at the level that they did? I mean our Governor limited property tax increases to 2% so,, How did our property taxes increase over 13%? Can any-one explain this to me?

Well DUH, all they had to do was have a majority to override the 2%.

The state passed the 2% ceiling, however, it stipulates exceptions and necessities may be made. Of course.....local governments are not going to manage better, lay off employees, forgo pay increases, have employees contribute to medical insurance. It's a bureaucracy that keeps on going with our tax dollars.

Just curious, but where will you move to, and what are the relevant comparable tax rates there?

town and county,village, and school taxes are pricing some people out of their own homes. It's scary to think what people on fixed incomes are going to do in the near future.
