Re: “Update: Law firm analyzes ballot measures

Mr. Gary is also worried about schools changing from September through May to March through November because they don't get their property tax money until January or February. Uh, hello, Matt! What does that have to do with the state making 40% to 50% of those payments instead of property owners???

Re: “Update: Law firm analyzes ballot measures

Mr. Gray is careful to avoid pointing out that when enterprises have to pay property taxes as well (just like the private sector businesses they are competing against), then property taxes will go down for everybody--including the enterprises.

Also, these enterprises pretty much have become enterprises in order to avoid TABOR. If they don't want to comply with the same burden all other businesses are expected to comply with ("tiny tax burden" when private enterprise pays it, "onerous" when enterprises pay it), they could just go back to being government services..that comply with TABOR.

I have a small business. I am expected to comply with all these same regulations that enterprises don't want to comply with. I have to pass on my costs to customers as well--that's what happens in business. If enterprises want to compete as businesses, then they can do it on the same playing field.

I either pay through property tax or I pay through "fees". personally, I prefer the consolidation. YES on 60, 61, and 101.
