Finance and Property Taxes

finance and property taxes special research report Photo by
Twenty-five years ago I sat here as a freshman Congressman--along with Speaker Albert--and listened for the first time to the President address the State of the Union. I shall never forget that moment. The Senate, the diplomatic corps, the Supreme Court, the Cabinet entered the Chamber, and then the President of the United States. As all of you are aware, I had some differences with President Truman. He had some with me. But I remember that on that day--the day he addressed that joint session of the newly elected Republican 80th Congress, he spoke not as a partisan, but as President of all the people--calling upon the Congress ...

Lebron James And Savannah: Sidekick, Baby Mama or More? : Girls ...
Hmmm. So are you his side kick?  That is how the man refers to her and if so then does that mean she is the Robin to his Batman?  Girl. Bye.  That’s where Bosh and Wade come in. I’ll make a disclaimer now so you can decide if you want to read more and hate me later or just hate me now and close the window.  I love everything about marriage, especially for African-Americans.  We can’t keep doing this baby mama stuff and think we won’t get our cards pulled.  So when I read articles like these rationalizing her position in his life it makes me irritated.  No, I truly don’t believe that everyone will ... market research, surveys and trends
Long Island municipality fights back to save energy retrofits ...
Babylon, New York, a city of a little over 200,000 people on Long Island, is fighting to save its recently adopted energy retrofit program from being killed by an independent federal agency at odds with the Obama administration’s Energy Department.  Now why are you scratching your head trying to grasp that?  I don’t blame you, to be honest.  I’m still trying to sort it out. An innovative concept recently adopted in many places across the country called PACE (for Property Assessed Clean Energy) applies proceeds from the sale of bonds to loans that help commercial and residential property owners ... market research, surveys and trends

As we approach this year’s city council election we face seven candidates who want to protect neighborhoods, maintain safety, and want quality parks. There’s no bad blood from W-2’s given to the media and little substantive debate over policy—save one issue, property taxes. You won’t hear equally from all candidates because they don’t have equal financial resources—and their web sites and mailers to date have lacked substance. So let’s consider campaign finance and property taxes as one tool to evaluate candidates. January 31 campaign finance reports reveal important considerations for voters. I primarily look for two things. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Korfhage: Red tape can kill green innovation
Imagine putting solar panels on your roof for no money down. You partner with your city or municipality to cover the up-front cost of your new renewable energy system, which you pay back to the city as an add-on to your property taxes. You spread your payments out over 20 years and most likely the savings from your lowered electricity bill more than cover your higher property tax. Not only do you become more self-sufficient in your energy generation, but also your city spurs development of new green-energy jobs. And everybody enjoys the benefits of shifting our society away from fossil fuels. Sound like a good idea to you? It ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Property Tax Extension Limitation Law - Government Finance - Local ...
Although the law is commonly called “tax caps,” the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law (PTELL) does not cap either individual property tax bills or individual property tax assessments. The limit is intended to slow the growth of revenues to taxing districts when property values and assessments are increasing faster than the rate of inflation. To understand PTELL, it’s important to first understand property taxes, including how they are assessed and used. Property taxes are raised and spent locally. According to the 1997 Illinois Property Tax Statistics, 1996 Extensions (collected ...

WikiAnswers - Are property taxes and income taxes both called ...
In the United States, before the 16th Amendment to the Constitution was passed, there was a lot of hand-wringing about what constituted a direct or indirect tax and there are a lot of court cases from the 19th century splitting hairs about the subject. The general direction of the case law was that an income tax on income derived from property was a direct tax and on income derived from wages was an indirect tax. Most states tax both types of income. Since the 16th Amendment was passed in 1913, all of this became moot since Congress was allowed to levy an income tax without regard to whether it was a direct or indirect tax. ...
Property taxes...why pay school taxes? - Yahoo! Answers
I own a home in New York state and pay property taxes which of course include very high school taxes. I don't think it is fair that I have to pay for another parent's child's education when I don't have and never will have children in the school system.
