Real Estate and Community Updates

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, there is at least one proposal published on the Federal Reserve Board of Chicago blog (but not representing the views of the Fed) that advocates tacking on a tax of 1% of your home's value to your property tax bill each year for the next 30 years. This would mean if your home is valued at $1M, you would pay an additional $10K/year in taxes for 30 years! Yes, such a proposal would significantly depress home values and, yes, the proposal even acknowledges that effect (read below). Lake County has put a non-binding referendum on their ballot as a reaction to this type of proposal (asking voters if they would like to see a constitutional ban on the creation of these types of taxes). I understand people may have strong emotions either way on an issue like this. I also understand that Illinois' unfunded pension liability will result in painful choices at some point. I am just asking that all become as aware and educated as you can so we can all vote intelligently and in line with what we think best serves the common good. midwest.chicagofedblogs.org/?p=3096. ...
