Our Government at Work

The other day we received a replacement property tax notice in the mail.  It explained that because the Governor and the Legislature have been unable to agree upon legislation to address funding for schools, and that the Governor vetoed the most recent funding option on September 4, 2009.  This veto resulted in a change in the property tax.  It was then explained that we needed to pay the difference.  Care to guess what we still owe?

$.01 yes that is correct.  They reprinted all of those forms and re-mailed them out to all of those property owners.  I think it is safe to assume doing that was way more costly than forgetting about that penny!  I am thinking of actually just mailing a penny in, I don’t really want to waste a check on it, I already have to waste  a freaking stamp!

  1. I figured it out! this is their way of raising revenue for the post office. think of all the extra stamps needed for this process. freaking geniuses!

  2. Actually it would be a tax lien and it would go on his credit report! I wonder if they would actually do that over a penny?
