In our area, if you live outside of the city, but work in the city, you still pay a city income tax. This is over, above and separate from any property tax.<quoted text>
I know where I live, my property taxes more than pay my fair share of community services. As such, I don't have to pay an additional income tax to my local government.
Now on the other hand, we have a home outside of the city and our summer taxes alone are in excess of $4000. We do not pay extra income taxes to our local unit of government either, but our quarterly contribution to the state and federal government is a royal pain in the a.ss.
How much do you want to bet that "our fair share", gets wasted every bit as much as your "fair share" does?
