We're losing $5 billion per year
Fairness is why I’m a Democrat.
No other party fights for fairness like the Democrats. People who work hard and save to buy a home deserve fair treatment. They deserve all the benefits that come from living in a neighborhood and being part of a community.
But when it comes to property taxes, the system is rigged against homeowners.
The “Equal and Uniform” loophole costs Texans $5 billion per year. Buy a house, and the county values it around what you paid. Buy an office building, and a judge can value it at half the price. Commercial property owners use it every day, but homeowners get no discount. This puts an unfair burden on homeowners.
When you lose $5 billion a year in property taxes, you can’t pay for things. Take education, for example. We’re ranked 43rd in the nation. I’ll never disclose my SAT scores (I had a bad day…), but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that more money helps us pay teachers like the professionals they are. Better pay. Better teachers. And, that makes for smarter kids. Click here to learn more about my education plan.
That’s just the start.
I’ll close this ridiculous loophole and bring fairness back to homeowners.
