Tax, Tax and More Tax - And The Proposed Community Center

Guess what?  JoCo has sent out the new appraisals that were used to determine property taxes.

Guess what?  Appraisals went up.  Word on the street is that some of the amounts were substantial.

Guess what?  That will apply to business and residential properties

Guess what?  Now add the proposed increase that would come with an approval for the new community center. 

Now, if you are a business or resident who rents instead of owns, you will still get hit by the new appraisals.  Why/  Because when your lease comes up your landlord will raise the rent.  Just like the landlord will raise the rent if the proposed mill levy increase is approved for the community center.

Oh, and let's not forget those folks who not only have residences here, but so are their businesses.  Double whammy, just to build a Taj Mahal in western Shawnee.

Tax, tax and more tax.  Pretty pictures by the city cannot deny the fact that everybody will pay more.
