Did anyone else notice that some of Moreheads "wealthy" people are delinquent on their property taxes? Come on folks, if us "poor" people can pay ours, you can pay yours.

Perhaps they are waiting on having their taxes adjusted because of the falling property values and have filed an appeal to have them adjusted downward.

Or they may have a CPA that handles their tax matters for them and do not personally have the tax bills sent to them, thus may be a bit delayed.

If you really want to get even "buy" "pay" their tax bill when it comes overdue.

Nope, just saying sometimes the bill is sent to a bad (old) address-as it has in the past with mine. It is sometimes the function of the government entity and not the individual.

Just pay your taxes rich boy. I will be glad when your BUSH TAX CUTS expire in January and you will actually have to PAY for the freedoms and infrastructure that your country provides you.

You shouldn't need something to arrive in the mail to remind you that you have to pay taxes. When you notice you didn't receive a bill you should be on the horn straightening it out. Stop making excuse for being a deadbeat.

Sorry, I am not seeing what you are quoting from, and as that information wasn't provided as the data source....didn't know. Can't read minds, and don't see the 'head news until I come into town..and that is not the small town type of news gossip I pour over.

But while you are on the subject of paying taxes- here is what your individual payment of the Obama increased debt would cost you...

The $64,000 Question: How Much Has Debt Increased Per Taxpayer Under Obama?
By Terence P. Jeffrey
July 12, 2012

( CNSNews.com )- The national debt has now *increased by more than--> --> $64,000 per federal taxpayer since Barack Obama was inaugurated president.

At the close of business on Jan. 20, 2009, according to the U.S. Treasury, the total debt of the federal government was $10,626,877,048,913.08. By the close of business on July 10, 2012, that debt had climbed to $15,885,854,755,351.47—an increase of $5,258,977,706,438.39.

In “Statistics of Income—2009 Individual Income Tax Returns,” which was published this year and is the Internal Revenue Service’s most recent statistical report on individual income tax data, the IRS reported that--> there were 81,890,189 tax returns filed in 2009 that reported taxable income.

If each of these--> 81,890,189 federal taxpayers were given responsibility for paying off an equal share of the new federal debt added since Obama was inaugurated,--> they would each need to pay about $64,219.88.

If -->each of these 81,890,189 federal taxpayers were given responsibility for paying off an** equal share of the entire federal debt of $15,885,854,755,351.47, they would each need to pay--> about $193,989.72

If you had read my first comment, you would have seen that I was talking about Property Taxes. No mind reading needed. Don't try to change the subject.

This is my business, and if you live in Rowan County and pay your Property taxes it is your business too. This money is what keeps our county running.

So does increased business; how many new businesses have relocated to Morehead? Perhaps you should take the individual initiative and call these people and tell them to pay up. Then call the ones sitting on their tails doing nothing and tell them to get to work finding a job, or committing to community service and cleaning up and sprucing up your Eastern Kentucky town.

Put your nose back to the grindstone and take care of your business and let the Sheriff Dept. take care of the delinquent tax individuals. Someone will buy the outstanding tax debt if the properties are worth anything- perhaps it could be you, oh, great citizen.

Perhaps if you had voted for a President who didn't increase the debt and trash the economy far worse than any President ever, perhaps these people may be in better financial positions to pay their taxes. Have you considered the business environment, or looked around in Morehead? It doesn't seem to be that shining city on the hill with roads paved of gold.

The wealthy have the money to get off or pay it off with penalties when push comes to shove - but they keep their money as long as they can

Thank you for the compliment, but I'm just an ordinary citizen that pays their taxes.
You seem to assume you know more than you do. Just for the record, I didn't vote for our current president,nor will I in November.
You seem to think it is ok if people don't pay their taxes. Could it be that you are one of the delinquents?

As I told you, you do not know of their circumstances as to the non-payment. Years ago, somehow, they mailed my taxes to an old address, which did delay my payment. If you are sooo concerned, drop each individual debtor a line and ask them kindly to pay up as the city needs their revenues to spend as the government so decides.

That should really fix the situation, and then you can amass your energies for other worthwhile community endeavors, like cleaning up the city and ridding itself of junk, eye sores and meth infested trailer parks.

You maybe right, there is always another side...but defending the rich is your parties agenda and defending the poor middle class is ours...Romney said it best, "I dont know where my money is, i have a blind trust"...we live completely different lives...sorry if we dont understand yours and sorry you dont understand ours....
