Dear Editor, So I heard this guy Brian Thompson (running for Dawnna Dukes' job) supports a bigger property-tax exemption. That's all you gotta tell me. For the past two years, I've made about $7,000 and paid $3,500 in tax on my homestead. That doesn't even include my "housing expenses" (mortgage/interest and insurance, utilities and their separate taxes). My income is below poverty level, and I pay half my income for tax on my homestead. Oh, but they say all the property-tax money goes to public schools. But then they say the public schools are starving. Can anyone tell me how this isn't complete insanity?
