Cabarrus is cruisin' for a bruisin'. Acres & acres & acres of land being developed with thousands of houses thrown up every few months. Eventually something's gotta give.

We all need to get used to it. They tax everything these days and they keep going up. It is so unfortunate, but thats life I guess...

What's that they say about death and taxes?
If taxes are used to better schools, reward great teachers, keep the roads and area clean, I'm all for it! Frankly, I think Union County is doing an amazing job, given the amount of taxes we pay, compared to $13,979 in property taxes we paid in New Jersey. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what I got for my taxes in New Jersey....blatant corruption, maybe?!

The "low cost of living" is one of the main drives for the areas population boom, taxes being one of them. You will not see taxes go up slowly over the next year or so, but will rise dramatically, they have to. Yes, we need more roads, schools, fire, police...we are so far behind on these things that new taxes are inevitable.

What I fear may happen is this area will lose its attractiveness as low cost for businesses and homes, and they will begin to look into other markets for better rates. I think lots of developers may sense this, and are getting all in at the same time before the price tag goes up.

Carolina I agree with u about the business...this happened here they had gotten tax breaks and well when taxes started to rise again the businesses lost alot of the breaks so they were shutting down operations or moving their operations in NJ or NY and going elsewhere...the paper said 17 cents over 4 years so in actuality it isnt alot...and I dont think that they would PRICE their own people out of the state..After seeing what places like NY and NJ and Fl have done to their residents..I know at the end of the day its all about the money....
