Taxes on property are determined by getting a list of all taxable property, appraising each property and then apportioning the amount of revenue to be collected among the listed property according to the appraised value of each property.
Knowing how direct taxation works in the abstract only makes property tax collection a simple process in an absolute monarchy, where the concept of the king’s realm or domain makes everything and everybody subject to direct taxation.
Getting rid of the king, as the Americans did in the American Revolution, would have gotten rid of the property tax in America, if George Washington hadn’t stepped in and taken King George III’s place.
Washington became head of the United States of America on April 6, 1789 and head of the government on April 30, 1789 and that process has continued through the administration of Barack Hussein Obama.
All those Presidents have spawned a new “Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harrass our People, and eat out their Substance,” who are now called government employees.
As was the case with all the king’s men, all government employees ultimately end up wielding the unrestrained the power of a king.
All over America cities are facing the reality of bankruptcy brought on by the mistaken belief the People and their property could be taxed without limit.
The new reality every municipality must face is the fact that the Declaration of Independence had it right—that taxation required informed consent.
George Washington fathered this country using deceit and military force. Now that we know how it was done we can stop deceitful collections and in the future allow no “Taxes on us without our Consent.”
