The voters approved a 1% Sales Tax increase starting next year (2.5% -> 3.5%) which represents not only a 40% increase, but also ~$1,000 additional tax on my next car...

:(:mad::oops::rolleyes:

Everybody wants something, and everybody has a "good reason" for their particular request for increased taxes.

If we give everybody what they want, it'll be like living in a Socialist country...

Oh wait....

Bull stop complaining! It was your choice to get off your ass and do something to become someone productive in life. You had the choice to be a lazy worthless gobernmnet leach, but you chose a different path. Millions of worthless scumbags "deserve" a piece of the rewards afforded to you by all your hard work.

Sadly I am right there with you....

Unfortunately, it's only worse in the other towns and cities around me, unless I move to an unincorporated area, which is difficult to find, unless I move out to the "Kansas" portion of Colorado...

But the low city tax used to make up for the high property tax in this area, now not so much.

State sales tax 2.9%
City sales tax 3.5%
County sales tax 0%

State Income tax for me ~4% IIRC


Other areas around me are as high as 8.5% sales, or even higher in some special areas.

Colorado is quickly becoming a very scenic Commyfornia :cry:. Any citizen that votes for a tax increase, or votes democrat is just like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders. It might sound ok on the surface, but sooner or later that decision has you going head first into the fryer.

3.5? Hate to tell ya but that's still relatively low. Lol it’s almost 7% here in CT.
If and when I buy my next Hellcat the sales tax will be almost $7,000.

I'm really ready to start a movement where my campaign slogan is to "Do without"...

I don't suspect I'll get far...

I lived in Seymour Ct for about 3 years when I worked the Boeing Sikorsky Comanche Program. I would not go back if it were raining money.

Feel your pain. Elbert County CO always claims to be poor but because of “ special taxing districts” in our development our property taxes are very high. Again no representation.

Try MARYLAND... 6% Sales Tax... been at this level of years and there is now talk of raising it.

TAX and spend DEMS run this state. Gerrymandering has corrupted the political process so the DEMS can steamroll anything they want through the vote.

MARYLAND is considered a TAX HELL state and it will only get worse.

Throw on the SALT tax effect and there is no wonder that people are leaving this state in mass to the south (i.e. Florida). [:(!] [:(!] [:(!] [:(!]

I know it's a wild pipe dream, but when Weld County presented a plan to have us and other like minded counties secede from Colorado and form Northern Colorado, I was all over it.

Oh, that doesn't include the plate registration fees...

I've paid between $1400 and $1700 on each of the new vehicles in my garage...
