Letter: Says landlords will pass on tax
Renters Beware of Nickel Tax. Renters there is some deception about this nickel tax that you should realize. I think every article I've read or radio interview I've heard about this tax, it has been stressed that renters will not have to pay this nickel tax.
Well.... it is true that you will not get an actual tax bill for it, but think about this. The property and home or apartment you live in is owned by someone who will receive a tax bill for this nickel tax. I don't know of very many landlords that will be willing to pay this tax and not pass it on to you in a higher rent bill. Also there are no plans to ever remove this tax if it passes even after the building is paid for. You might not realize it, but you will pay this tax.
I'm not against good schools, but look what happened with the High School. After they were met with such opposition when they wanted to close the county schools they said that the old high school was too deteriorated and costly to renovate so they needed a new building. Funny thing that after the new high school was built, they then decided the old high school was worth renovating after all and in doing so they could close the county schools and bus the children to town.
They also say Col. William Casey was built in the 1960s so it is too old to work with. Well I think if you will check the records you will find that the old high school was built in the 1950s, but once they got the new high school built the old one all of a sudden became worthy of renovation. So is C.W.C. too old and deteriorated or might this same thing happen again?
So think about this on Tuesday Dec. 15 when the Nickel Tax vote is scheduled. For it or against it, Get out and vote.. Don't sit around and let someone else dictate what happens.
I also agree with the submission by JR that if this tax is only going to be paid by property owners, why is everyone being allowed to vote on it? I guess its like most politics, unfair to those it really affects.
