Property tax increase



The Gazette, Colorado Springs


With all of the uproar about the unheard-of increase in property taxes (40% for me and I am not unusual in that regard), did anyone stop and think about: The assessors who worked up the new property taxes must have realized that these new taxes would generate unheard of new revenue. They are the experts, right? We, the voters of El Paso Country, were blindsided, and we were never given a voice on the property tax increase. TABOR, anyone? Roger Thomas Colorado Springs
