I just got my DeKalb County property tax assessment. Ouch.

Back in 1997 DeKalb County voters voted in a 1% increase in the sales tax in order to roll back property taxes. Got that? We were willing to pay an extra percent in the sales tax to get property tax relief.

Of course, our elected officials couldn't be satisfied. Having conned a majority of the voters into the sales tax increase, they've been raising property taxes as well.

I think the motto of DeKalb County governmnent has to be something along the lines of "Quick! While They're Distracted!"
