Today鈥檚 the day! Today鈥檚 the day I become a home owner 馃グ

The leftist part of my brain is disgusted with myself. 鈥淥h, gonna complain about property taxes now???鈥 But the normal part of my brain is happy.

@ashfurrow you can simply choose not to complain about property taxes! It's very freeing actually.

@lawremipsum this is my goal 鈥 to be a home owner who doesn鈥檛 complain all the time 馃槂

@ashfurrow you might be surprised to learn it's completely legal!

@ashfurrow the alternative is that you rent the house from somebody (or some corporation) that complains about property taxes.
At least that's what I'll tell myself, if and when I'll own a house.

@ashfurrow seize the means of domesticity! :)

@ashfurrow it is the most regressive form of taxation, though. If you lose your job and are struggling to tighten your belt, you don't pay income tax at all, sales tax drops with consumption, but property tax eel slaps you in the face.

@ashfurrow that is awesome, congratulations!!!

@ashfurrow congrats, we鈥檝e been out bid so many times at this point we aren鈥檛 looking anymore. First time in my life I would have been able to afford a house and the market pops up to keep me from it. I know it鈥檚 not targeting me directly, but it still doesn鈥檛 feel any better. My brother and his wife are in the same boat.
