Here are some thoughts on property tax.
#1. The property tax is an unbiblical, evil tax because the Bible no where grants the State jurisdiction to impose a property tax.
Don't know anything about Wisconsin law but this guy is a nut case. What kind of tax would he decide is "Biblical?" Where does the Bible authorize electric light bulbs? Maybe the Amish are correct?
Paying the property taxes that we do (some of the highest in the nation - easy 5 figures), I'd love to say "amen" but all I can say is that the guy has a screw loose.
A property tax on a church is double taxation in that the church is a nonprofit entity that relies on the support of the tax payer that has already met his tax deed.
Or a triple tax if the inheritance tax comes into play. Or a fourth tax if capital gains taxes ensue. And a fifth tax when sales taxes are taken into account. The next time I hear a social liberal bemoan the length of sacred writ I'll kindly remind him that the tax code is of Biblical proportion.
Our society makes it's own laws. The Bible isn't considered. But to call my house and property mine, is not correct. If I don't pay the taxes, the state will take it from me.
Oregon doesn't have a sales tax, but i would support it only, ONLY if they would rid us of the property tax. I know many widows that have had to sell their homes after the husband dies, because the property tax was too burdensome. And that is wrong. IMO
