I am blind and self-employed. I am fortunate enough to own my home, due to my late husband's life insurance. However, property taxes continue to climb due to increasing assessed value. I have always thought that funding schools via property taxes is foolish, at best. I have no children, but realize that funding schools is important. We need to do it in a more equitable way. It's time to separate property taxes from school funding. I would happily pay a higher income tax, because that is tied to my income and my ability to pay!
