Property taxes pay for public school systems.
Nobody argues that.
However, a coworker observed that “by enacting property taxes, the government essentially eliminated private property, because one never comes to the point of full ownership of ones property.
There’s always another payment due.
One basically ‘rents’ from the government. Failure to pay results in eviction.
Property taxation thus enabled the government to ‘land-grab’ the whole country.”
This argument holds water logically. And we all know politicians can be pretty tricky.
But I’m wary of jumping to conclusions.
