Okay I'm going to rant once more about Taxes. Fayetteville NC/ Cumberland Cty has been trying to get a 1% added onto our sales tax to help with the education budget. We even had the school board SUE the county when they cut the budget 5 or 6 million the other year. They reached an agreement in mediation. The argument that people are using for this is we have alot of people in this town that are renter's(we are a military town). "Renters don't pay property taxes!" etc..... This is utterly false and total BS. You see they have threatened to raise property taxes if they can't get the sales tax they want. They taught the public with bogus arguments like these; and get the less informed to run aroiund spouting these slogans. Well unless these renters live in cardboard boxes under bridges then they pay property taxes when they pay their rent. There is not one person who rents property who does not figure in the taxes when the calculate a rent. I know I own a rental property. Once in a radio interview with the one of the enlightened elected officials a caller asked why can't the city and county just learn to live within their budgets and cut spending every once in a while. The radio guy jumped in and chided the caller and said "haven't you heard what we have been talking about. Every one pays the sales tax not everyone pays property tax" The councilman agreed with the radio announcer and started on how it would be more fair if we raised sales tax. Both the radio announcer and the councilman completely ignored the point the caller made. Which was CUT SPENDING! Why is this so **** hard to comprehend?
