Two weeks after it was announced that Agricultural Land values were going up an average of 30%, there is FINALLY a newspaper covering the issue. Show of hands: who thinks that counties are going to reduce mills to compensate for the increased valuation? No, I don't think so either.
Show of hands: how many farmers have enjoyed a 30% increase in income in the last year? No, I didn't think so. In fact, this last year saw some of the highest number of acres of cropland that were not planted because of rain and flooding.
This is just one more example of how unsustainable Property Tax is. It continues to rise and the increases far outstrip citizen's income. Can there be any other solution other than to eliminate this onerous tax?
