If you want zero property taxes and all the benefits, that does not balance properly.

Koaj wants to benefit from the higher wage base where he lives yet does not understand that with that higher wage base come other higher costs..real estate, taxes etc.

Move to Sedalia Missouri if you want low property taxes, but doing so would also cut his wives salary in half too..if you could find a job in the first place.

When I lived on the main line in PA 18 months ago, the wage base was MUCH higher than here in Phoenix, but the other costs such as real estate, taxes, general cost of living were also higher.

So the higher the property value = higher cost to put out fires and higher cost to protect and serve? Or is it the higher the property value the more the government can get away with charging you for property taxes?

Actually no on both counts.

Not sure where I suggested either notion?

but yet the federal tax rate ignores where you live but takes a big chunk of change regradless.

as well as saying 250K is the line in the sand that makes you "rich".....250K in NYC does not make a man rich.

but to be more on topic there is a balance that needs to be struck..........everyone benefits from the services (obvioulsy depending on the service some more than others) but yet the higher wage earners pay most of the bill.......is that really fair?

so someone who paid their way through college and lands a good job in NYC and is saddled with college debt upon graduation should pay the lions share for the drop out who was unmotivated by school and choses to work at 7-11 so he/she can buy some weed and play Warcraft all day.

there is something wrong with the system

Lords...

so what is your solution?

I have stated before that I am in favor of a simple flat tax... sure the rich will pay more, but it is all proportional...  it also would eliminate the billions of dollars in senseless spending on the IRS and the whole tax tracking practice...  I mean think about all of the tax dollars you pay to have the government make sure you are paying your taxes to pay for them tracking you paying your taxes...

there is something wrong with the system

Part of my feelings however is that corporations and large businesses benefit from the stability, quality of life, safety and infrastructure of America... and to think that the police and military pay taxes on their earnings to protect citizens and keep an environment of opportunity for corporations to prosper while corporation dont pay their fare share because of tax loop holes doesnt sit well with me... because as you say...  everyone benefits from services but some more then others...
