Wading Through the Numbers: Why do we have to have tax increases?

-A A +A

By Ron Woody

Most everyone complains about a tax increase whether it be property tax, sales tax, income tax, or any other form of taxation. People also complain about the lack of, or poor service they receive from their government agencies.

Is there waste in our government? The answer is yes. Is there waste in your household or business budget? I would say yes.

I’m not writing this article to advocate a tax increase, but I’m writing to help explain in a broad aspect why some of our taxes and even fees for services increase.
