The Government doesn't giveth...

...but it surely will taketh away.

I had been wondering about how my own property tax bill was going to look like this year. After arriving last week, I was almost afraid to look, fearing we'd be staring at an assessed value that is more than we could expect to see if we sold the damned thing tomorrow. Thankfully, that is not the case, the county assessor's office is at least making an attempt at reflecting actual market valuation.

Those poor sobs in Hoboken are fucked, however.

This is yet another example of how government can, and will, destroy.

Thank God for our Prop 13 - it ended the killer tax increases and indexed them. Ours is only a couple thou' a year.
But the new Eastcoaster guy who bought in downstairs after Crazy Girl couldn't pay her mortgage and sold, he's paying boucoup les Buckez du Semolians....
