School Surtax 101
This is NOT a .2% or.4% increase! No wonder everyone thinks we are winers!!! I would be too standing where they are standing. That’s the message that we need to get out and educate on. People are glossing over the wording…….we need to spell it out. This represents a 35% increase (and sometimes more) in property taxes and doesn’t take into consideration the increase yet due from theVancouver City. We are assuming the reader is more educated and has done the math. They are not. They see .2 and .4 and think “what’s the big deal”. Even in our own backyard, people hadn’t done the math until the ‘fake” Tax Notice was sent, then, it actually hit home.
