“Automatic” 2% Property Tax Increase Should Be Voter Decision


If you missed this yesterday, Jeff challenged the Legislature to eliminate towns, cities and counties authority to raise property taxes by 2%.  What’s essentially has become an automatic and expected 2% tax increase every year should be required to go to the voters for approval. The 2% property tax increase should be treated just like sales tax increases, which are required to go to the voters for any increase.

LD6 Representative Bob Thorpe happened to be listening to the show and had this to say about Jeff’s request,

“I will try to end retroactive property tax increases”  Rep. Thorpe

More on this today at 3PM on the Jeff Oravits Show.  97.1FM and streaming online.
Plus Friday, Rep. Thorpe will join the program.

Here is yesterdays post with more details on this issue.
