Why should Muscogee County, GA residents vote YES to Thaw the Freeze? Let’s look at some Freeze Facts:
- Every homeowner who benefits from the Freeze is allowed to keep it.
- The Freeze is unfair and promotes inequality.
- The Freeze limits options for seniors on fixed incomes.
- Retiring the Freeze will create jobs in Columbus.
After nearly 35 years of negative effects it’s clear that our property tax valuation Freeze:
- Stagnates job growth
- Discourages families from living inside our county line
- Strangles our opportunities and success
We can do better! Let’s grow Columbus, GA with a fair tax system that works for us. For more information and facts please visit:
Reynolds.. I’m still waiting for you to “get back with me” about those 29,000 homes that pay less than $100.00 in taxes.
All the information is down at the Tax Assessor’s Office.
I do believe you said you would get that info and get back with me.
Still waitin.. since last October.. for the breakdown of the 29,000 homesteads you claim are paying $100.00 or less.. quadrants will do.
Since last year the Tax Assessor’s office has been converting to a new software in preparation for 1/1/2017 conversion. In the meantime, you can go down there and speak with an assessor to have your questions answered.
Chester Randolp – .. I’ve known you for a long time, but I’m calling you out on your “suggestion” that $1,000,000.00 homes pay the same taxes as $100,000.00 ones..Point them out.. not just “suggest” them. Now if you want to talk about the taxes on the Eagle and Phenix Condos, you have my support,, there are many multi-100s of 1000 dollar units paying less than $100.00 in taxes.. and some own them and another home in Columbus that has a homestead exemption as well. This is wrong!
Now you talking Hal the E & P Mill taxes needs to be corrected I have not been able to find out how that got put in place in the first place. But I know if I purchased one and put it in my name it was change the tax structure so does anyone want to support me on that??
Terry, please read my reply to Hal’s last post, regarding E & P.
Hal, Eagle and Phenix Mill Lofts applied for a Property Tax Credit before construction began. I believe in 2017 the taxes for each unit will adjust to 100% of FMV. The developers of The Flowers Building used this redevelopment tool also. FYI this is a blog, not FaceBook. If you want to reach Chester, this is not the best avenue. As always, thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments.
