You've convinced me Lev.....where do I sign up for this increased Land Tax Bill....sounds perfect for me as a property investor. I gather everyone on this forum would also agree with your proposals to increase Land Tax.....but hang on....wasn't the premise of this thread something along the lines of "What can I do to reduce my LT bill ??" The start of your dissertation was along the lines of "assuming you are from a council board or state legislature"......but none of us are Lev.....we are private property investors on the other end of the Land Tax Bill.....you know, the giving end - not the receiving end. I can very well see how LT may be just nirvana for all Govt instrumentalities....but then I don't give a toss about them or their objectives. I'm paddling my canoe and care about my canoe.
