Well, the tax bills came and no surprises here. Once again in this down economy where property and home values are still downward, our Kane County taxes increased by $682.78.
The tax rates went up for all taxing districts, with District 303 reaping the bulk of it with an increase of $365.56. Out of our entire property tax bill over 50 percent goes to D303.
And, the amount we put into all the pensions increased also. While I feel people are definitely entitled to what they put into their pensions, I am tired of paying into their pensions as well. We pay into seven different pensions on our tax bill and yet the pension funds are still in trouble. I find that simply outrageous.
Thanks for another year of sticking it to us.
