Recently I had someone from the Assessor’s Office knock at my door, wanting to know if my neighbor owned the part of the fence they butted up to or did I own all the fence?
I was informed that fences are going to be taxed. As the assessor walked my property line with his measuring wheel, I envisioned my already high taxes jumping another $300 next year.
I think it’s time our elected officials learn to live within their means. Illinois is already one of the highest-taxing states. Time for some new politicians.
