BTW: the Prop 13 is not the answer---it does not address the people who receive the huge exemptions and does not take into account the many voter mandated espenditures---the exemptions should be the focus of efforts re property taxes. They should be eliminated. All of them.Sep 17, 2011
We hear a lot of screaming about federal income taxes which are low and not paid by those making little money but not nearly as much about these local money drainers---my property taxes went up $ 1,600 this year.

The paper needs to re-publish their map of a few years ago highlighting the properties in the county whose wealthy owners receive preferential rates.

I feel a lot better now.Sep 17, 2011
