DENVER (CBS4) – Hundreds of Coloradans lost their homes to floods or fires this past year but they’re still paying property taxes on property that in some cases doesn’t exist.
One state lawmaker, Rep. Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont, says that’s not right. He’s carrying a bill that would have the state pay the taxes.
“Originally I was going to write a bill called “if the tax assessor can’t find your home, he can’t tax you,” Singer said.
To be fair though that guy probably should have thought things through before taking out a massive loan to build a house in what seem to be the middle of a river.
Isn't Colorado a "blue state"? I thought they would show more compassion... isn't that what they preach?
