Property Tax Hike & the Cruise Ship Tax
By Dan McQueen


January 22, 2007

With all the money coming in from the New Cruise Ship Tax - which we passed - and the yearly sales tax generated by locals and hoards of tourists spending all the money they do in this town generating bags & bags of tax money, why do our government officials think that WE, the tax-paying year-round residents can afford another TAX INCREASE?

Wasn't the cruise-tax suppose to offset the need to OVER-TAX the LOCALS?

Someone mentioned a Property Tax-Cap. I second that idea!
