No new taxes

October 4, 2013

To the editor: Here is a history refresher for you. In 1776, the thinking was “no taxation without representation.” Then, there was the battle cry for “Independence” Confederation didn’t quite work....

I am not here to "help poor people" in fact I wont rent out to poor people. They must have a decent income to qualify. I have increased my rents by 20% over the past few years. I agree, having a tax decrease I would pocket the difference, but the valuation of the property has gone up thus meaning more tax has to be paid even with a tax decrease. I am here to make money, not lose or help people out.

nonewtaxes: It is acknowledged a landlord will pass on a tax increase, when the market will support a higher rent, to the renter. Usually, landlords will not typically lower rents with a tax decrease. Helping renters with the rent is the only sure to help poor people. No new taxes is debatable as to the benefit for poor renters. But there is NO DEBATE, that wealthy homeowners put money in their pockets with the Mayor's "no new taxes" subterfuge. That's where the votes are.

Just to clarify. Renters and Tenant's pay 100% of the tax. My annual rent increases are due to tax increases. As my house expenditure goes up so does the rent. So any time taxes go up, I don't pay them my tenants do. Renters get screwed with increased taxes not land lords.

Perry you are a little late on being against the Stamp Act since the American Revolutionary War has past a bit.

But good to know you might not have been a Tory

Mr. L. Switch: For the record, i am against the stamp tax, the currency tax, the tea tax, the sugar tax and the "etc" tax. I also know, from your past comments, that your world is populated with mad hatters, rabbits who are running late and queens screaming, "off with their heads!" Sorry, not interested in your wonderland.

My letter says nothing about being over taxed or under taxed. Mr. Sullivan says he votes "no new taxes" because he is trying to show his compassion for poor people in the Cape who can't put food on the table.

Let's try again. "No New Taxes" favor wealthy people like you who pay taxes, not poor people on government programs. Lower taxes, more money for you, not poor people.

Somebody better tell F C Perry of the Cape Coral Civic Association the over taxation was made up of multiple taxes on the ragtag band of residents in Boston.

Stamp Tax, Currency tax, sugar tax, tea tax, etc.

Perry needs to look at the Calusahatchee to see the TEA is already in the harbor so to speak.

And they wait for season to generate dollars to feed their life style that is slipping, slipping, slipping away.

What this city needs is more NEW TAXES. You'll be seeing more foreclosure, for sale, and rent and forget about it signs. May be the new sign ordinance can keep those signs out of sight?

I wholeheartedly agree! We both want, and need, a city of quality NOT simply quantity. The Sam's Club that recently was approved by planning and zoning waited for infrastructure before even considering coming to the Cape. It was also McGrail NOT Sullivan that worked to bring them here!
