I'm not seeing any relief in this bill. Taxing entities can raise taxes as long as they stay under the threshold. Nor does it do anything to curb tax appraisers increasing values which essentially is increasing our tax bill. All which is hard on a retiree fixed income.

So..3.5% increased in perpetuity, and our County Appraisals are bumped this year by 12%-300%, and the county says hands tied by Abbott. #MAGA

That's a good start. Next GET RID OF PROPERTY TAX. A person should not have to bust their ass to pay off their property to a bank or previous owner just to have to continue paying for it to the state.

You tell 'em Robert.
