This is absurd, was this an Obama mandate? The people of Utah are fed up with
government getting over invloved in private business and their fraud and scams
and forcing the citizens to pay higher taxes so our government leaders can put
the employee's and business owners on the state welfare system.Government has expanded itself way beyond its ability to serve and fund, has
become a political game of manipulation of lies and deception. Business moving
to Utah for the graft and tax free labor the governor is paying them.
Unemployment including welfare employees is a "double digit" lie. The
only difference in welfare fund and unemployment funds is that unemployment is
taxable unearned income. The tens of thousands of the employed "welfare"
workers and the business are exempted from paying taxes. We don't have
anymore unemployment funds so this adds thousands to the welfare dependents.Not only the funding fraud frenzy permeating the governors office,
Draper is not the place of choice to build a business where the ground is too
unstable and slide prone. And how many thousands more people can we put on
welfare before it bankrupts the state?
My2cents, I don't think you understand how these types of partnerships
work.First, the County will continue to receive the tax rates for
the value of the property at the current level. Second, the County
will also receive 25% to 30% of their share of the new value of the property as
construction starts and as the value further increases until the agreement ends
when they then receive 100% of their share.So, to put this in
numbers. If they are currently getting $10.00 in taxes, they will continue to
get this. If the value of the property at full build should give the County at
100% $100.00, this means the County would still receive the original $10.00 plus
$25.00 or $30.00 for the new value for 30 years.So, we have the
County getting between $35.00 and $40.00 a year rather than $10.00. That is how
these type of agreements work. The County will never go below their current
taxing level in the area. It is only based on the increase in value.One other thing, the land in this area is stable, unlike the Corner Canyon
Giving hard earned tax dollars to Terry Diehl? Now thats a huge mistake.
I am pleased to see Utah embracing the marriage of government and business.
Obama has been such a fine catalyst. I am a very proud taxpayer.
