Taxes and Death

>> Wednesday, January 26, 2005

Apparently I am not the only resident who thought the Polk County 1% sales tax increase was supposed to help fund school building renovations and add new buildings as needed throughout the county. I guess the only solution for wasting our money is to raise taxes and put more of our tax dollars to poor use. I feel that a lot of money is wasted needlessly. Sometime take a look at how much money is spent on the contracts for new buildings and related items. It's absolutely ridiculous. Read how narrow the margin of 'victory' was here. Property taxes here are already among the highest in Polk County.

I actually started figuring how much of our yearly income goes to taxes of one sort or another. It's seriously about 35% (I wish I had all of my receipts for sales tax). If you feel I am wrong, please enlighten me. I am just disgusted!
