    WOW!!!!!

    Santa Claus must look out for you. I live on 3/4 of an acre and I pay over $4,500 a year in property tax. You are getting the deal of the century there. Sounds like a really unjust system that would allow somebody with 26 acres to pay just 25% more than somebody with just 3% of that land. Sounds like the deck is stacked in your favor and you are probably allowing others to pick up the slack for what you yourself are not paying in that unjust tax system.

    I've always had 3 vehicles (one's a junker - hopeful future rebuild), my acreage and my house.

    My taxes 5 years ago were $87.78 - and now they're $379.02 - though nothing's actually changed in all this time.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Yeah - I don't complain I did when they increased so significantly - but it's still nothing compare to everyone else.

    Re: How Much are your Property Taxes?

    I still live at home and I'm a student so I don't personally pay property taxes yet. I believe where I live though the property tax is fairly low. Personally I am against property taxes. I feel it infringes on our rights to own property. I don't support taxing someone's property that they legally own.

    Where do you live? What is your property worth? $6000 in property taxes for 26 acres is extreme for agricultural property. The only crops you could grow that could pay them are marijuana and/or opium poppies.
