Re: “Taxpayers stay silent on county tax rate,” Oct. 3, 2012

My parents taught me a saying, “Silence speaks louder than words.” The silence mentioned in the newspaper article should be deafening, especially to the County Commissioners. Do you suppose the Commissioners just forgot that the taxpayers of Wilson County might be working during the day, which just coincidentally happens to be the time in which the “special meetings” are called? That being the primary reason why the taxpayers are viewed as being “silent.”

Again, is there some logical reason why one or two of the special and/or monthly meetings can’t be held in the evening, so that their constituents (taxpayers) could come to bring input to decisions concerning the county?

The Commissioners are elected to represent this county, which I believe, also includes listening to what we have to say. Give us an opportunity to be heard!

Alvin, the ag exemption is not going to change it's has become a tax loop hole for hobby farmers and real estate investment and family recreation centers. It no longer serves it's intended purpose. It should be done away with ... More ›

Inflation is the worse tax of all. What you purchased in 1970 for a dollar at the start of the worse inflation decade in my memory cost $2.12 in 1980. The US dollar lost over half its' value in just a short ten years. Those ... More ›

Alvin.....Some people scam the system by not really engaging in any type of profitable ag activity. Of course even small acreage engaged in real activity enhance our farming system. If we did not have an ag exemption, then large ... More ›

Yep, I think it can be a scam. But, it takes holding at least 10 acreas for at least 5 years in order to qualify for AG exempt. And also - if you sell the property - those taxes will be paid by someone (either seller or buyer) ... More ›
