NO! to the mil tax increase every year, one organization or another posts the day of the year that we all work to just to pay our taxes. With the proposed mil tax, property owners can add another two days of work to that date to pay the mil tax increase.
That’s two days you work and pay taxes on that income, just to send the rest to your local government in the form of another tax. I, for one, am tired of government organizations overspending and otherwise mismanaging their monies and then putting their hand in my pocket to make up for it.
The University of New Mexico has many channels for raising money. They receive state funding. They get money from the lottery. They have students who pay tuition. They have alumni and the general public that make donations. Why then are our county officials proposing a local tax for a state facility? Does our county council believe that we have so much excess money that they see fit to tax us more and spend it on a few? Kind of them to ask us, before they visit us again later and impose a tax where we have no choice.
