Issue #3
PROPOSED TAX LEVY (*ADDITIONAL*)
SYLVANIA CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT
A Majority Affirmative Vote Is Necessary For Passage.
An additional tax for the benefit of the Sylvania City School District for the purpose of current expenses at a rate not exceeding 4.9 mills for each one dollar of valuation, which amounts to $0.49 for each one hundred dollars of valuation, for a continuing period of time, commencing in 2010, first due in calendar year 2011.

This is a brand new tax and has no end in sight - meaning that it will never, ever expire. This is a property tax, and if your home is worth $100,000 you'll have to cough up an additional $490 every single year you live in Sylvania. That's if your home is valued at $100,000. The average home in Sylvania is valued at just a little more than that; $219,842 as of 2010. So in this case, you'll have to come up with an additional $1,077.

The schools claim they need the money more than you do. They don't. They likely want the money more than you do, but they do not need it.

Dear Mr. Government:

Due to "unexpected" decreases in my net income (now and for the forseeable future), I must therefore cut my spending to achive a balanced household budget. Therefore, I cannot give you money for this program.

Best wishes!!

Mr. Taxpayer.
