Ooops! Perry's Texas Tax Legislation Was Supposed to HELP us, but instead... we get a Tax HIKE

26 October 2006 at 4:37:26 PM

Imagine that. We already knew Perry going on TV and saying that he was giving us all money was baloney-but now the tax bills are coming in the mail and REALITY sets in.

October 25, 2006)—Texas homeowners who were expecting a break this fall are confused and frustrated as the property tax bills arrive and as a result, one of the governor’s campaign plusses may be turning into a negative with two weeks to go before Election Day.

Here's what Perry did and said.

In May, Gov. Rick Perry signed a bill into law dedicating future revenue from new school finance tax bills to sustain a $15.7 billion cut in school property taxes.

“For too long, Texans have paid some of the highest property taxes in America, in spite of significant tax cuts authorized by the legislature in recent years. But that’s about to change,” Perry said as he signed the bill in Waxahachie.

“This time Texans will get both tax rate relief and tax rate reform.”

Here's what's REALLY happening

But complicating factors like increased property value, higher city and county taxes and bonds for school building construction are eating away the reduction this fall, leaving most homeowners with an overall tax hike.
