    Thank GOD I live in Texas, where this madness would get laughed away.

    How did we go from a country that is founded on tax revolt, and unshackling us to this abomination ?

    Tennessee has some variation of this.
    Best thing to do is add up all the taxes paid. It will likely be shocking and then you will get angry.

    people keep promising free stuff. Someone has to pay for it. Yep, that’s us.

    Well my guess would be so many people attempt to get out of or just don’t pay their taxes so the gov’t has to create other taxes to keep the country rolling. Prob wouldn’t be so bad if people didn’t try and avoid paying taxes and the gov’t used the tax $ for legit purposes. Unfortunately, there are a lot of dishonest people on both sides of the equation.

    I don't get upset about that because our real estate taxes are the lowest in the state.
    Less than $6 per $1000 of real estate value. Some towns are as high as $30 per $1000.

    My tangible property tax is usually under $200 a year. That's not too bad.

    I get more bent from the state taking $500 every year for just being incorporated :realmad:
    It's called the 'minimum franchise tax'. It's robbery without a gun.

    I had to pay to get incorporated and that's fine.
    What's with this yearly tax of $500? I get nothing out of it.

    I was opening one of those vehicle air fresheners that have fluid inside and you pull a tab that releases the fragrance. Clips on the vent. Anyway when I pulled the tab the fricken thing opened and fluid spilled on my seat, my legs, shoes everywhere. Talk about stink. You can't wash that crap off. :angry::angry:

    Yes. One of the neighbors happened to walk by and asked where that smell was coming from. It was strong. Hope it gets out of my truck soon.
