The Columbia Daily Herald reports that the property tax less city long held out as model by anti-tax activists is looking at taxing property again:
Though the city’s coffers are better off than last year, Finance Director Jim Smith says the city will continue to operate in the red if revenues are not increased.
“Money is being taken out of the general fund just to make payroll,” Smith said, adding that city property taxes, which were eliminated in 2005, may need to be reinstated for area residents.
“We’re there. We’re at the point where we have to have property taxes,” Smith said. “They have been postponing the inevitable and are at the point where the rubber meets the road.”
