Property Tax Time

2 Dec

Personal and real estate property tax bills arrived in JeffCo mailboxes in recent weeks. Last year these taxes caused a lot of furor for political candidates in various local entities, including Arnold and North Jefferson Ambulance. In light of these incidents, I provide a public service announcement:

If you are a potential candidate for local office who is in favor of liberty and small, open, and ethical government, PAY YOUR TAXES. If you don’t, your candidacy will end prematurely. Pay them right away, and maybe do it in person and get a receipt (funny things happen with the mail sometimes).

However, if you are a potential candidate who is in favor of big spending and cronyism, don’t worry about it. Pay your taxes when you feel like it. There will be no repercussions.

    We got a birds eye view of that in Arnold when the administration had to wait until the last minute to appoint Crisler as his taxes had not been paid up.

    I look people up all the time on the county tax records website. I am surprised at how many people (both elected officials and citizens) who bitch about government spending who have not paid their taxes in YEARS! Pay your freaking taxes, people. Or don’t own property. And definitely don’t complain about how your city is broke. If you don’t pay your taxes, you are part of the problem. Our check is already in the mail. You know this bill is coming. Prepare in advance. It’s called BUDGETING.

      Stop being so freaking sarcastic. Everyone’s situation is different.

    Everyone knows that it is coming and that they have to pay it and should be budgeting. I’m personally amazed at how an elected official for the county thinks it’s okay to pay late. I’m also amazed at some of the political candidates that think it’s okay to pay late every year except for when they decide to run. They should be consistent and pay on time every year. They should be budgeting, too. If they can’t budget to pay it, then how can we trust them with our tax money?
