That’s why he needs to get moving and get it approved before election day to get my vote, otherwise I won’t vote for him because he won’t follow thru.

I get the impression this is going to be another shell and pea game.

Oh I am just waiting for the county auditor to come out and ‘reassess my property’. It is going to be just like the last ‘tax relief’ we got.. The state said lower taxes and the local said higher..
If you keep up with news in other areas of the state.. You’d find this interesting in Bismarck. The school system wants 86 Million for new schools. The civic center wants like 50 million to expand, and then there was another project for like 60 million. To top off that property values are skyrocketing in that area, you can better believe that the assessor is going to be going out and rubbing his hands together.

If people actually want that tax relief they are going to have to vote out some of the Republican legislators.
Hot debate. What do you think? 30 22
Good point. How many decades have the Republicans controlled the goverorship and the legislature? And how many years has the governor come out with great sounding PR programs, while members of his own party shot them down?

Gene, 99.8% of the time we are on the same page. The point 2 is when we talk about gas prices.

Thanks for the reasoned and courteous PM. I tried to respond but got an error message each time when I tried to send. Yes, guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree on that one.

Figuring it out for inflation, it’s pretty much just the school property tax program currently being funded plus more income tax. Why are Republicans just so worried that WalMart is paying too much income tax in ND?
I haven’t seen many (Kevin excluded) who seem to even care about the income tax, it’s property tax driving people crazy.
For some reason, Republicans want us to be like South Dakota, which rates high on some Republican lists for business climate and at the bottom for actually doing business. Why in the world would anyone want us to be like South Dakota? Sanford isn’t going to move his taxes here anyway.

I HATE doing business in South Dakota. Their tax laws make my accountant want to cut himself.

Our oil boom has been amazing in a number of ways. However, one of the most amusing elements of the whole issue is how North Dakota politicians claim that the state is such good financial shape “because of our party and its policies”. Of course, they never say anything about the technology changing and improving to be able to finally have the ability to extract the oil. In my life, I’m not sure that I’ve witnessed such a display of disingenuous prattle. In this case, our fine politicians clearly “do not have anything to do with it”.

Dontcha know the Republicans put the oil in the ground 65 million years ago. Sarah Palin will agrue about that with you though.

“The proposal includes a 50 percent reduction in the average school district tax levy”
What does that mean in the long run though? If for some reason the boom suddenly slows down and money isn’t flowing in at the same rate….Does that mean the school districts will find themselves in the same condition that many in MN are in? Will they suddenly have to find ways to increase class size and cut programs and teachers? Why the hell do they always want to mess with the one thing that should be at the top of the list in importance?

The school mill levy to the homeowner would be half of what it should be because the State would be paying the other half. This would result in a decreased amount of property taxes that the homeowner would pay. This is not a bad idea as it is fair across the board; to both residential and business property owners. I would guess that the process would be looked at in the future should the needs of the schools change as with population growth, etc.
