Clay County taxes

What a shock to have revealed that Clay County does not collect real estate taxes (8/20, Local, “Property tax could return; The money is needed to fund road districts, the county administrator says”). I am almost scared to ask what my taxes will increase to when they start.

While we focus on taxes at the federal level, they are cleaning out our bank accounts at the local and state levels. The personal property tax on my cars is approaching the sales tax level. Imagine paying the amount you pay when you purchase the car every year just for the privilege of owning it.

And to make matters worse, the state finds increasing value in my car every year, while the market finds decreasing value.
