I have a much simpler solution: parents pay for their children's education.Cortopassi wrote: ↑Sat Jun 09, 2018 10:42 pmTaxes are $10,200. 66% is for the school districts. Up until last week, I had two kids in them, now one. Have they been worth $6700 a year? Absolutely. Will I want to pay it when they are both done?

By comparison, we pay about $2k a year in real estate taxes, for which we get:
1. Publik skools, which we have never used and will never use (most of the taxes);
2. County roads and sheriff services, which we do use (the former fairly often and the latter very rarely);
3. A hospital, which we have used on occasion.
Somehow I doubt he is getting 6x as much as we are in services, but maybe he is.
If the system ever changes to where users of specific services pay a surcharge during the years the service is used, like schools, and when done using, taxes go to a much lower level, I would have done that, and would do that. And it would allow me to stay in the area.
