PROPERTY TAX OUTRAGE: Readers scorn deep developer discounts

Millions of dollars of development and estate land brings in just $2,363.26 in yearly property taxes
 
COLUMBIA, 12/1/11  (Op-Ed) --  "Amazing and disheartening," is how David Stokes, a policy analyst at one of Missouri's leading conservative think tanks, characterizes Boone County's ridiculously generous property tax breaks for the area's richest and most powerful residents and businesses.  

Other Heart Beat readers feel the same way.  They have no problem paying their fair share of taxes, but scorn the idea that so-called "one percenters" -- the country's wealthiest individuals and businesses -- pay virtually nothing, the highest form of collusion with donation-hungry public officials.
