OUR REAL ESTATE TAXES-
This real estate tax thing is just another random thought that I might as well share….
There are approximately 18k houses in my town with an average real estate tax of $10k per year. That is $180million per year!
As far as I know the majority of this goes to the schools,(50%) I think…. and the rest is for maintenance of roads, parks, local government and police payroll, and whatever else……..
So if we take out 1/2 for schools $90million *don’t forget the schools also receive funding from other sources on top of that,yet (We still underpay our teachers) but thats another topic….
Now there is $90million left for them to spread around…… I’ll have to come back to this because I dont feel like crunching #’s right now. lol I’m sure it won’t add up without “left overs” that they find someway to use use it ——– responsibly lol
