Letter: Property taxes are passed down to you, the consumer
Voting is so important. A well-studied lesson can lower your cost of living expense. If you vote for more tax, it is you who will be paying the tax as a taxpayer and consumer.
The commercial businesses and corporations are the largest payer of property taxes. Their cost of doing business and tax expenses are passed on to you, the consumer, for the goods, services, house payments and rent you pay to them.
Don’t be brainwashed into thinking only the wealthy are paying the taxes. It is passed on down to you, the consumer, and to you, the taxpayer. Be aware and study your lesson well as many of these taxes go on forever.
