Local governments weigh major tax hikes to plug coronavirus-induced shortfalls

Homeowners, beware.

State and local governments scrambling to raise money during the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic are looking to increased property taxes -- as well as wealth taxes and more -- to fill budget holes.

The proposals come as officials are trying to strike a balance. Historic job losses caused by lockdowns fueled the downturn that's put the squeeze on city and state budgets. Washington sought to offset this with stimulus payments, additional unemployment benefits, business grants and more. Any push to raise taxes too dramatically could hurt the economy even more.

But some officials argue that increases are unavoidable.
Nashville Tenn has already decided, California is going to propose a disastrous tax hike on non agricultural commercial properties (that sounds like it will include apartment complexes and commercial real estate like malls and storefronts), Dallas and of course Chicago and New York...

Seeing the writing on the wall that the current economic system is collapsing is GREAT NEWS as it pertains to the TIME at hand.

Short term hope. "I was young and now I am old but have NEVER seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging for bread."

Long term hope, WHEN the monetary system in place collapses it will have become the stage for the AC to step up and bring his false peace narrative/plan.

Our Father owns it ALL including US (you and I), we were bought and paid for! And by His Spirit we are crying "Abba Father, PLEASE SEND US JESUS!" lol

It figures :mad: If they can’t succeed in milking money from the federal government then they will take it from their state taxpayers. California is the worst because they cry about being in a deficit but they find the money to give medicaid to illegal immigrants and give them state stimulus checks and Who pays for it? Oh and Californians have a health insurance mandate or pay a fine while illegal immigrants are given free health insurance and pay nothing. How do they figure?

It's sad, but you have some really twisted leaders over there. My sister and her husband are in San Diego and they have complained about the taxes. They are retired now. I'm wondering what they'll do.

So, all of those commercial entities that just lost lots of money because their stupid governments decided to shut everything down for longer than necessary are going to have to foot the bill for those same governments stupidity.

The net result being that more businesses will go out of business forcing those stupid governments to raise taxes even more to cover the new shortfall...

This was all part of the plan.

And then you have liberal Minnesota who allowed the so called protests that led to rioting, looting, and arson of businesses now asking the federal government to pick up the expense to rebuild the very destruction they allowed to take place. The Trump Administration said NO!

The latest rate hike being proposed in Nashville is 38-39% increase in property taxes, yet the real estate market is still booming. I think a lot of folks who live in high priced cities are coming here because they can still get a lot more for their money than in the “blue destruction zones”. But they bring their politics with them and are ruining the large cities. The spoiled, entitled, uneducated, terrorists are STILL camping out on the state Capitol area DEMANDING to see governor Lee and DEMANDING change. He’s smarter than playing into that game, and I hope he continues to hold the line. It makes me nervous when my husband has to go to a major hospital there to work every day. And liberalism is ALIVE AND WELL within the hospital walls with demands being made on staff to “give the students time to protest on hospital property”. You can’t even have a safe experience at a hospital anymore.

They're going to tax the retirees on fixed incomes out of their homes. Rents are so high, they can't afford to rent (especially with higher rents coming due to higher property taxes), so there will be no place to go, except multiple occupancy rooms (likely not with the spouse) funded by Medicaid (after losing their homes), which will domino into higher taxes and more lost houses :mad :mad :mad :mad :mad

Due to the lack of beds, elderly will become the next wave of homeless. Likely preyed upon everyone and then killed off by the weather/sickness :mad

I think we all saw this coming a mile away. If Biden gets elected (please, God, no!!!) we can kiss the Trump tax cuts goodbye. In addition, the filthy liberals will try and increase taxes across the board and nothing will be off the table. If the worst case happens and the filthy liberals also get both the House and Senate (please, God, no!), there will be absolutely nothing stopping their demented plans to crater the fossil fuel industry and impose "earth saving measures" aka carbon taxes and similar on ALL Americans. If you want a prevue of coming attractions, look to further than just how badly the filthy liberals have damaged the Commonwealth of Virginia in the short time they've had complete control. The radical left passed ridiculous legislation that phases out all carbon-based fuels by 2050. Yeah, by 2050 Virginia will be entirely powered by green energy. If this isn't crazy enough, Blackface BabyKiller signed agregious abortion legislation into law. And if that isn't enough, the filthy liberals significantly eroded Virginian's Second Amendment rights and they're just getting started. Liberals ruin EVERYTHING they touch. Without exception every town, city, county, and state controlled by liberals ends up a corrupt, crime infested, debauched, tax-heavy disaster. And that's what they have in store for all of America.

If you live in a liberal-controlled locality, especially if rioting, looting, and mayhem has been the rule (e.g. Richmond), the human debris running the show, a.k.a. liberals, are going to increase taxes acrosss the board to make up for revenue shortfalls that they willfully facilitated by letting thugs and radicals destroy their own cities and businesses. The white flight is already started. Unfortunately, the liberal filth that were attracted to their ilk in places like the City of Richmond, being the abject hypocrites that they are, once they get the liberal utopia they so desperately want, seeing how jacked up it is, decide they don't want to subject themselves or their families to their own asinine ideology and leave. The problem? They don't learn and move to the suburbs and take their liberal sickenss with them eventually spreading it to others much like a veneral disease passed around a college frat house.

There is a saying...there are two certainties in life; death and taxes. I offer a third certainty; liberal stupidity.
