Stop raising taxes

We need our local boards (Fire, Library, School, City, Township,etc.) to stop raising their levy. Increasing the levy causes an increase in property tax.

Boards have the notion that they should suck every penny they can from home owners and business. Boards feel that if they don’t go for the max they lose out on money. Boards feel that taxes are their money forgetting where the money comes from. I understand some tax is needed but to expand services, give raises, or buy unneeded equipment is just wrong in a time of economic crisis. Boards should keep everything the same, and pray to God we come out of this mess. When you lose your Job it is a depression,If you have a job you don’t feel it, and it is business as usual. Increases in tax are really hurting family, friends, and neighbors.

Stop hurting our families

Stop the local taxing board’s disease raise my tax-itis
My name is Steve Balich, and I say no more, the taxpayers have had enough with local Boards raising their Levy’s (property tax). November 21st about 60 people showed up to the Lockport H.S. School Board meeting. The people understand that increasing the levy makes their property tax go up. Local school, fire, library, etc. boards think they need to raise taxes to the max allowed every year. These elected board members forget they represent the people paying taxes in their Districts.

When all these boards raise their portion of your tax bill just a little, it adds up to a substantial amount of increased money on the property tax bill. On a $5000 tax bill, a 3% yearly increase equals $466 more in 3 years.

Increased taxes is forcing people who have lost income, jobs, or on fixed income into a position where they have to sell their home or face foreclosure, or a tax sale. The schools give raises saying it is for the children. School Boards expect taxpayers to believe that paying a larger salary will make our children learn more. They refuse to recognize that increased taxes force children of families that can’t afford the increases out of the school district, and their families to do with less. Every dollar paid in tax is a dollar less for food, clothes, and other family necessities.

Taxpayers need to remember they have the power to remedy the situation by voting out any board member who votes to raise property tax without a extremely good reason. Government needs to cut spending and stop expanding in this time of economic crisis. Taxpayers should also consider running for a position on these local boards, as well as attending their meetings.

Democrats that don’t agree with the progressive philosophy that is hurting all of us need to look at candidates that stand for traditional America. I am certain that some Progressive leaders in Illinois who have been in power for far to long are the reason our State is bankrupt. The State and local Taxing bodies are not broke. They are designed to provide money and power to those pulling the strings. The State 2% increase will be paid as a payroll tax from your pay check starting January 1st. Your house went down in value and local taxing bodies raise their levy’s making your property tax go up.

Will a $500 property tax increase force you to move

WILL YOU LOSE YOUR HOME 3% yearly Tax increase equals $500 increase in 3 years
No one wants to lose their home, or THE ABILITY to afford living in a neighborhood where they live, have friends, and have a quality of life despite local taxing boards joining with the State and Federal government to pilfer our hard earned income. It seems to be the mantra of local boards, especially schools to go for the maximum allowed increase in tax every year. Despite excessive reserves in many cases, these boards want to get more money from your property tax, because they can.

Each of us is standing on a pivotal point in U.S. history when taxing bodies are legally stealing our wealth, and putting us in negative financial positions. Individuals need to stand together and make their disdain for John Lukasik, Susan Forbes, Lou Ann Johnson, Mike Lewandowski, and Charles Travis, from the Lockport H.S. School Board known. Every Taxpayer needs to show up Monday November 21st at 7pm at the Lockport East H.S. school board meeting to let your feeling be public. The 5.3% is not even for Teachers, whose contracts are up in March. http://www.homerhorizon.com/Articles-Opinion-c-2011-11-02-230924.114133-Letters-to-the-Editor.html
If your property Tax is $5000, you pay at least $3000 to the local schools. The teachers are paid well with good benefits. The Administration is really taken care of with huge salaries and perks that rival a king or dictator. The Boards we elect are usually rubber stamps to anyone but the taxpayer voting for every tax increase. An increase of 3% each year means an increased loss of your income compounded.
THIS IS AN INCREASE from $5000 TO $54636.64 in property tax. So this small yearly increase is compounded into just under a $500 increase in your taxes in 3 years.
Our local taxing bodies seem to think that this is just fine. When seniors can’t afford their property tax anymore it is irrelevant to those we elect to these Boards. When those who lost income, or jobs are struggling to make ends meet this board and others look at them as collateral damage. The people on these Boards don’t seem to care about the loss of our quality of life by what they are imposing on all of us. How long before You can’t afford living in your home?
You are needed to make a difference in this assault on our families. Will County Tea Party Alliance & your family need you to come to the November 21st meeting and sign up to speak. We need you to tell them “NO MORE”. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/will-you-lose-your-home-with-a-500-tax-increase

If every taxing body raises it’s Levy 3% a home owner will pay $150 more on a $5000 tax bill. When this is done every year for 10 years, the increase is $1500.
