Charlotte's Latest Tax Rip-Off
Get ready for ANOTHER tax increase that will be hitting your pocket book or wallet soon. The Charlotte City Council a.k.a. The Communist Party is attempting to sell our State Legislature another tax scheme designed to use money meant for roads and transportation and use it to fill the pockets of uptown developers. The plan is to divert money from roads and transportation and use if to build things uptown that will mainly serve the wealthy uptown fat cats and their cronies. If they get thier way they will raise the car rental tax from 11 to 16 percent and raise the car tax at the airport to 27 percent including additional airport fees. More than half of the people that rent cars in Charlotte are local residents so this is not just something that will effect out-of-town travelers. After the recent 5 percent increase in property taxes this plan boggles the mind of anyone with common sense. I am in no way against people developing the uptown. I am just against uptown developers using corrupt government officials to steal my money and make me pay for their projects.
