RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
The value of our house dropped, yet our property taxes increased. A call to Multnomah County resulted in my finding out that our property taxes increase by 3% a year irrespective of the value of our home. Moreover, our property taxes subsidize those who can't pay their property taxes. What needs to be done to get a Prop 13 initiative on the ballot (i.e. one that is even more aggressive than Measure 5)? Additionally, if my money is going to help with Portland Schools, why is it that schools keep having funding issues, resulting in more people moving to Vancouver, which has better schools? Enough already!
