May 15 Webinar: Valuation of Care Homes


I am sending this newsletter out a bit earlier than the usual end of the month as I wanted you to receive it before the Easter weekend. If you are taking some additional time off over the long weekend, I hope you have a great time with family and friends.

The title of an article caught my eye recently “There’s Nothing Conservative about Repealing the Property Tax”. The author, looking at the property tax system in the USA, said: “Property taxes generate 72 percent of local tax revenue. If governments can afford to cut taxes that deeply, surely there are more pro-growth places to cut. A tax revolt is brewing, with homeowners and farmers in a half-dozen states and counting swinging behind sweeping proposals to eliminate local property taxes. A popular movement to repeal a major tax may sound like a conservative’s dream, but for free-market conservatives, this particular dream could easily turn out to be a nightmare.......
