[QUOTE=AllanDeGroot;2663701]Ask any englishman who owns a house in London, yet has to pay "land rent"
to the lord mayor of london.
Of course the situation was not much different here in the U.S. of A. where I used to live.
On the house that cost $3100 to build in 1895 and my father paid $17,000 for in 1964 and eventually sold for $130,000 was costing $11,000 in property taxes per year in 1995.
And people believe they “own” things…
AD[/QUOTE] You are correct Allan, I bought a home when my son was born in 1992 and the Property taxes were 3,000USD, now they are over 10,000USD a year , luckily for me I am over 66 so I am entitled to the Senior Citizen Tax Freeze, as of the time I was 66 my taxes cannot grow.
