Mic: Quit Listening To Negative Nellies

North Idaho College Trustee Mic Armon commented moments ago:

Dan Gookin and his fellow anti tax group need to quit complaining about how bad their tax bill is and look at real numbers. I addressed this issue at my going away statement this past Wednesday evening at the NIC Board of Trustee meeting. There were a number of statements about how it was the NIC Board that had increased everyone’s property taxes over the past 5 years by 116% or in another statement that “every family of four in Kootenai County saw their property taxes increase by $600.00”. Those statements are just plain false. I requested copies of my own personal property tax statements for the past 5 years. My taxes paid to NIC in 2008 was $468.82 and my taxes paid to NIC in 2012 is $467.22 for a whopping $1.60 less in 5 years. Full comment here.
