Deadbeats, legislators and school board members

As a preface to my annual list of property tax deadbeats, I want to note there are other causes of massive yearly property tax increases, principally from public schools.

Deadbeats cause school boards to increase millage around 10 percent to offset tax delinquents. State legislators do nothing to provide other sources of tax revenues and refuse to change the archaic law that actually encourages property owners to not pay their taxes.

School boards raise taxes every year and do not want to get involved with tough budgeting, telling teachers to go pound sand or refusing to vote for tax increases.

1. $98,200 -- Gail Ferver, Londonderry
