say someone bought their house in grant park for $50,000 in 1990. the most the house was ever worth from 1990-2000 was $125,000, in 1998, and they paid $1250 in taxes. $125,000 in TODAY'S dollars is $1700. that means that if this law had been in place, they would still pay taxes on their house and pay $1700 this year, even though their house is now worth $400,000.


if they sold the property to an unrelated individual, the property tax would immediately go up to $4000 and would no longer be subject to the cap.


are you really that blissfully unaware of everything that has happened in the past 6 years?
We did give loans to companies with TARP(which I wasn't a fan of) but they had to repay those at least mostly.

Difficult to do if you are underwater. Otherwise, I agree that moving is a good option for such people.
