property tax

3 posts in this topic

In order to vote in an election to raise the property tax of property owners, shouldn't only property owners be legal to vote in the election?

Citizens whom rent property shouldn't be allowed in to vote in the election to increase property tax?

Can you please answer this question?

What is the thought on this question?

Has it ever been ruled by a judge that a renter and non property tax paying citizen is not eligible to vote in an election to raise property taxes?

Thank you

I would assume so. You may wish to contact you local district for clarification.

I would agree but the law in your district may say otherwise.

You may wish to consult with local counsel regarding this issue. You may wish to use the FindLaw Lawyers Directory. Many of the lawyers do offer a free consultation. Hope that helps.

"In order to vote in an election to raise the property tax of property owners, shouldn't only property owners be legal to vote in the election?"

That would be nonsensical, since not all citizens of a given place will own property; in any event what "should" be and what is are two different things.

"Citizens whom rent property shouldn't be allowed in to vote in the election to increase property tax?"

Is this a statement or question? In any event, it wouldn't be possible to exclude only X voters instead of Y voters.

"Can you please answer this question?"

Not clear why you thought this was necessary.

"What is the thought on this question?"

... or this.

"Has it ever been ruled by a judge that a renter and non property tax paying citizen is not eligible to vote in an election to raise property taxes?"

Even in the history of the world, I doubt it (though what is relevant depends on state law where you are, which is unknown). In any event, the boards aren't really here to expect others to do free legal research in any event (if you provide relevant detail on where you are and someone feels like doing it or happens to know, they may obviously choose to answer).
