County Taxes Short $10 Million!

Collection of county taxes is down — way down and county officials would like to know why.

Mark Seard, Washington County Tax Assessor delivered the news to the Washington County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday. “I hate to be the bearer of bad news,” Seard said. “I have compiled a yearly report of Ad Valorem Assessments of the county and from September of 2009 until September of this year we are down over $10 million dollars in taxes.”

Seard said $2.5 million was down in public taxes, another $2.2 million in realty and $5 million in personal taxes. “It’s hard to say what is the one factor why these numbers are so high,” Seard said. “These numbers are alarming.”

According to Seard more than $3 million of the $10 million shortage is in automobile taxes. “We have really seen a decrease in our car tags for the county,” said Seard. Paul Watson, board president, asked Seard to do a comparison of tax assessments to surrounding and neighboring sister counties.

Washington County Tax Collector, Patricia Lee said it’s not that county residents are not paying their taxes, it is that more people are not purchasing new cars.

“We have done more tag renewals this year than in years past,” Lee said. “If people do not purchase new cars then the value of that depreciates and goes down every year. We have not had as many new car tags purchases this year. We actually did an audit in June and everything was intact. We are in good standing.”

After speaking with sales representatives from local car dealerships, some said the Cash For Clunkers or now known as CARS (Community Assistance to Recycle and Save) gave the car industry a shot in the arm but hindered future potential car sales.

Seard said a combination of depreciation, non-collected taxes and fewer new auto sales are contributing factors to the county’s $10 million less in total taxes year to date. “Also we’ve been noticing a higher number of out-of-state tags in the county and around the city of
Greenville,” Seard said. “Tags from Louisiana, Arkansas and a rising number of blue car dealer tags are all things we need to look at. These factors are just a percentage of the problem for the city.”

On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors adopted a county budget of $29.5 million dollars, over the complaints of citizens who attended a budget hearing.

Walley Morse asked the board about the proposed budget and said that in the past five years the city has lost more than 10,000 people yet the budget for sheriffs department increased by 37 percent with the decrease in people.

Sheriff Milton Gaston Sr., acknowledged the lower population but said there has not been a drop in crimes being committed in the county.

Barbara W. Clark, a retired counselor/educator at
Coleman Middle School, shared Morse’s sentiments and questioned the supervisors’ compassion on raising taxes on county residents. “I am retired, along with these other ladies who are here in attendance,” Clark said. “We didn’t retire as educators to pay you all, all of our money. People can’t afford this, already citizens are having trouble paying their water and electric bills.

Clark said being a retired educator after 28 1/2 years of service, to see her property taxes jump in 2009 from $1,200 to more than $1,600 is too expensive. “I’m being depleted,” said Clark. “The people remaining in the county are being taxed to death. Citizens like myself and others are hurting with this wasteful spending the county has put taxpayer’s dollars’ into like those casinos and title loan companies.”

Morse and Clark questioned the supervisors’ loyalty to citizens of the county — that sparked every county supervisor to speak.

Paul Watson, board president said, it is and always has been the boards’ responsibility to do what is best for citizens of the county. “We work hard to be impartial to everyone,” said Watson. “We don’t want to sit up here on this board like we’re some ‘fat cats’.”

Jesse Amos, District 4 supervisor spoke of how so many jobs that have left the county and country now are located oversees. “I am going to be honest, this city has turned into a service station,” Amos said. “With Wal-Mart and K-Mart being here it is hard to see jobs coming back to this area. The only way I see jobs coming back is if the ‘big people’ gotta go broke and come together as one group regardless of race; black, white blue or brown.”

Al Rankins, District 5 supervisor said he has been on the board for more than 20 years and has always tried to look out for the best interest of the people of this community. “We go into these budget hearings with no secrets,” Rankins said. “There are just some things, some essential services that we must provide to citizens of
Washington County. We have cut this budget to the bare. I’m a conservative person and I spend this county’s money as if it were my own...

Ernest Holmes, District 5 Supervisor told the county residents that their voices can be heard and impacted next year being an election year.

Let’s see… property taxes just went up, car tags are the highest in the state, water and sewage rates are going up in October and real estate values are down 40% from where they were ten years ago. And we wonder why the Director of Economic Development just quit?

The last time I purchased my car tag, they wouldn’t even take a check… CASH only. As I counted out the $874.00, the worker stated, “I bet that’s the most money you ever paid for a little plastic sticker.” I replied, “Not really… I paid a lot more last year.” As I walked out of court house I thought to myself, “I wonder how much of that cash will ever make it to the county?”

Here’s an epiphany for Mark Seard… The reason tax collections are down by $10 million dollars is because tax payers are fleeing the area, leaving fewer and fewer to support the growing majority of residents who feed on our system and pay no taxes! Seard blames a combination of "depreciation, non-collected taxes and fewer new auto sales for the loss"!

What depreciation? The assessed value of my house for tax purposes went up this year! The only thing that depreciated was the appraised “value” of my house which is now less than I paid for it ten years ago.

As for non-collected taxes, whose problem is that? If paying county taxes has become an option, I would like to opt out. The simple truth is that our city and county “officials” can’t (or choose not to) enforce the tax laws. There are no consequences for some residents who don’t pay these taxes. We simply write off this revenue as “noncollectable” and then raise taxes on the remaining few who do pay.

And the “fewer new cars” ruse is the best! Who can afford a new car when they are paying for the most expensive car tags in the state… and driving on the worst roads? I am too busy keeping my tires aligned every three months from our dilapidated infrastructure!

As for our “Supervisors” comments, the only one who speaks even a word of truth is Ernest Holmes, who told the county residents “that their voices can be heard and impacted next year being an election year.”

While grammatically incorrect, the message is clear. Unfortunately for Ernest, he may have just sealed his own fate!

I saw the light 20 years ago and left G'ville. Almost all of my friends that I went to school with have also left. The whites that are caught and can't leave are the only ones supporting G'ville. I feel sorry that the whites left can't leave and finish out their lives with some sort of peace. It was hard to just one day pickup and leave the only place I had known but everyday I thank God we did. Goodluck for those who can't leave and have to spend ridiculous amounts for taxes and tags for for those who are just sucking then dry. Just think if you had the guts to just leave and only pay 30 dollars for a car tag, no private school, housing still going up instead of way down, streets you can actually drive on,safe to walk around your town when the sun goes down and the community is all for one and one for all.These places are out there you just have to make the move.

When the Governor suspended Patricia Lee and all the women in the tax office for over 1 million in stolen revenue, they were all found "innocent". Lee was reinstated and is now sueing. So where the hell is the missing money? It just didn't disappear. SOMEONE STOLE IT! Go ahead and forget about it, sweep it under the rug and re-access all of the taxpayers again and tell the press that revenues are down. PITIFUL!

You are right! But, I don't think that it was Patricia Lee.

The money was missing...hence, someone stole it!

Now, let's put on our thinking caps and try to remember.

Who in the city hall has been spending money and has the assets to account for it?

An example would be...owned more than ONE house within the last few years....very expensive travel trips out of the country....numerous trips within the United States....expensive divorce settlement....numerous property dwellings at one's personal church...access to the files & accounts, etc.

Hmmmmmm.

Come on. We can figure this out.

In regard to your question...YES, the people of color (as you so called them!) are also sick of the way things are in Greenville.

Last Friday, over 100 residents, and students (and their Principal)from Darling Achievement Center marched to both the City Police Department and the City Hall to inform "the powers that be" that they were tired of the violence in Greenville, especially in THE schools.

Also, note that Kaho's wife was a social worker as that school.(Don't know if she's still there, or not.)And Kenny Gines' wife was also a teacher at that school at one time.

The majority of the students, if not all 100%, are black and I'm assuming the residents/parents were also black.

The deceased baby's daddy or Carla's baby's daddy?

Carla murdered a pregnant woman.

But Carla had a baby that did not live with her.

The baby lived in Greenville with Carla's parents until they moved away to be closer to her on visitation days.

And, according to Lynda Hughes'(Carla's mother) "live on T.V. interview" during the court case, Carla's baby is a "special needs" child.

You have absolutely no clue of what you are talking about. You don't even know what a greencard is. Let me explain.

You said:
"For one thing...if you want to live and work here...then, live and work here legally. Become a citizen and obtain a social security card".

A greencard is actually what allows you to legally work and live in the U.S. You cannot obtain a greencard without a SS card and you need to have a greencard for 5 years before becoming a citizen.

You said:
"Second thing,...if you want to live and work here...learn the English language, both spoken and written".

There are multiple ways to obtain a greencard. A huge percentage is through work. Priority is given to people with extraordinary abilities (Dalai Lama, Shakira, Alex Rodriguez, etc.), exceptional abilities (scientists, specialized physicians, etc.), advanced degrees (software programers) and investors that will create jobs in this country. Needless to say, this people tend not to have many issues comunicating in your language.

You said:
"Third thing...always, always, abide by our laws".

Not all immigrants are illegal criminals.

You said:
"Fourth thing...keep your drugs in your native country and don't bring them here".

Not all immigrants or greencard holders are from Mexico. Not all mexicans are drug dealers.

And for every so-called "green-card" holder that has a JOB here in the US of A...means that ONE
American born U.S. citizen is out a job.

Our unemployment rate is far too high...to continually hire foreigners.

We Americans would just love to stay at a hotel/motel that was not owned by someone from India.

We Americans would just love to stop at a "quick stop" store/gas station that was not owned by someone from India.

We Americans would just love to have American doctors in our emergency room. They can practice in their own country, but instead come here, and "suck off" of Medicaid patients. They don't have Medicaid in their "home" countries.

We Americans would just love to have Americans in our research industries. Why? Because these are government jobs, which are funded by state and national monies. US of A state and national monies!

And as long as a few, true "green card" holders are allowed, then it leaves the door wide open for the
illegals that want to abuse our government and try to get a "monthly" check.

If we can't provide jobs for our own, then, why hire foreigners and allow foreigners to slip thru the boundaries.

Your ignorance on the subject of immigration is really insulting.

An employment based greencard is a long and complicated process. Way before it is granted, the potential employer has to obtain a Labor Certification wich, among other things, it requires that the position offered to the foreign worker has been advertised for 6 months to a year. Only after it can be proved that no Americans are willing or able to fill that position, it is offered to the foreigner.

Now let's talk about doctors. Less than 30 percent of MDs going into residency programs are americans. There is already a huge deficit of physicians nationwide and the gap is growing as the population ages. One way to ease the problem is a federal mandate that require foreign doctors to serve for 3-5 years in rural underserved areas (like yours) before getting a greencard. So next time you go to the ER an hear a foreign accent be a little more appreciative.

I live in America and I want an American doctor...one that studied in America, trained by Americans and can easily speak the English language to confidently explain my health conditions with me & family members so that we can understand!

My medical insurance is with an American company and ALL of my providers should thus, be Americans if they are to be paid with American money.

The insurance companies are receiving the monthly premium payments from American policy holders....and should exclusively use American medical doctors as providers of the "said" insurance policy.

There are enough American doctors to provide service to American policy holders.

Foreigner doctors can serve in their own countries...where medical care is provided for free for all natives! But, that might posibly mean that THEY,(the foreign doctors!) will NOT receive payment for services rendered!

Oh, well, maybe THEY need to choose a profession in their native country that is recognized and that THEY can receive payment for services rendered.

Very few foreign countries offer medical insurance to its natives!

The Department of Health & Human
Services, primarily Medicare, funds the vast majority of residency funding in the United States. This tax-based financing covers resident salaries & benefits thru payments called Direct Medical Education or (DME) payments.

Medicare also uses taxes for Indirect Medical Education or (IME) payments , a subsidy paid to teaching hospitals that is tied to admissions of Medicare patients in exchange for training physicians.

Overall funding levels however, have remained frozen over the last 10 years, creating a bottleneck in the training of new physicians in the United States, according to the AMA.

Anonymous said...

Residency.....continued

On the other hand, some argue that Medicare subsidies for training residents simply provide surplus revenue for hospitals which re-coup their training costs by paying residents salaries (roughly $35,000 per year) that are far below the residents market value.

Nicholson's research suggests, in fact, that residency bottlenecks are not caused by Medicare funding cap, but rather, by Residency Review Committees (which approve new residencies in each specialty) which seek to limit the number of specialists in their field to maintain high incomes.

In any case, hospitals trained residents long before Medicare provided additional subsidies for that purpose. A large number of teaching hospitals fund resident training to increase the supply of residency slots, leading to a modest 4% growth in slots from 1998-2004.

It could happen with good leadership in Greenville. We not only have thngs on the street, but in city hall, the police department, and the county courthouse.

Ever seen all the movies with Charles Bronson called DEATH WISH? He took care of business. White folks unite and take back our town along with Mr. Bronson.

The DDT does not know it's head from it's ass. The publisher is still living a cloud according to his editorial from Sunday - he actually thinks this community is going turn around and spend mo money with that rag. He is a shortimer a just doesn't realize it yet. It's only a matter of time before Emerich decides to take what money is left in his daddy's empire and shut the DDT down, among his other publications. And as for Cross, his opinion is swayed by who signs his paycheck.

Do you think the idiots that supported Obama and his stupid ideas get the message now? How is that change working for you? Now he and his cronies want to compromise, well I don't think so Obama. Why is it when losers lose they always want to compromise? He didn't want to listen to the people before why should we listen to him now? So, just sit there for 2 more years and do nothing and count the days until you and your stupid,lying ,cheating, backdoor dealing ways are gone!!!!

No one could possible do as bad as Bush. Just goes to show how high a "C-" student and a drunk can go as still be considered great simply because he was white.

At least Bush is not a liar, dishonest,racist and at least had a clue how to run a business. Obama won because the whites just wanted to show the blacks that a black man cannot be a very good leader and Obama has certainly proved that. Just look what happened last week to send him a message. He lost nearly 70 seats in the house and 7 seats in the senate for him ridiculous policies.

You are right 7:40. Just look what black leadership has done to G'ville. If it gets any worse there will not be a G'ville very much longer. All the whites will soon be gone therefore no taxes will be paid in the city to even keep the lights on. G'ville will be like the movie ESCAPE FRON NEW YORK CITY. G'ville blacks must open their eyes and see it or go down with the sinking ship they have caused.

NOW ON A DIFFERENT NOTE:

YOU ALL HAVE HEARD OF A "SPEED TRAP" THAT HAPPENED IN THESE SMALL SAD DELTA TOWNS,

WELL I HAVE A STORY FOR YOU.

THE TOWN OF SHAW(A SAD LITTLE PLACE) HAS A BLACK YOUNG COCKY CITY COP THAT HAS MADE SHAW A TRAP FOR WRITING TICKETS FOR NO SEAT BELTS,
THE THING IS,, HE STOPS THE WHITE PEOPLE THAT ARE PASSING THROUGH AND TICKETS THEM WHETHER THEY HAVE A SEAT BELT ON OR NOT. WELL, HE SAYS, ITS HIS WORD VS YOURS AND HE WILL WIN,

I ACTUALLY GOT STOPPED THIS AM FOR NO SEAT BELT, AND I HAD MINE ON. ACTUALLY I ALMOST NEVER LEAVE MY HOUSE WITHOUT MY SEAT BELT ON.
HE BLUE LIGHTED ME AND PULLED ME OVER,, THEN PROCEDED TO TELL ME THAT I DIDNT HAVE MY BELT ON.. (WHICH MY SEAT BELT WAS STILL ON)
AFTER TRYING TO FIGURE WHY HE WOULD LIE AND SAY THIS,, HE JUST GAVE ME A TICKET AND TOOK MY LICENSE AND TOLD ME THAT I WOULD GET THEM BACK WHEN I PAID MY TICKET..
WELL I TOOK MY TICKET AND LEFT..
AS THE DAY WENT BY AND TALKING TO MANY PEOPLE ABOUT HOW I WAS TREATED, I FOUND OUT THAT HE HAS BEEN STOPPING WHITE PEOPLE FOR A LONG TIME NOW AND GIVING TICKETS FOR NO SEAT BELT. I HAVE TALKED TO OVER 10 PEOPLE THAT HAVE GOTTEN TICKETS JUST THE SAME WAY AND THEY HAD THEIR BELTS ON ALSO.

YOU KNOW WHEN THIS COCKY BLACK COP HAS THIS KIND OF AUTHORITY TO DO THIS,, WELL ITS TIME SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT HIM,,,

AND WE WONDER WHY SMALL DELTA TOWNS LIKE SHAW ARE DRYING UP..
I WILL NEVER STOP OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME IN THAT TOWN.

ALSO, HIS RECORD NEEDS TO BE LOOKED INTO..

HOW MANY MORE CAN WE FIND THAT HAS BEEN PUSHED AROUND LIKE THIS WHEN THEY DID NOTHING WRONG EITHER.

MAYBE THE RIGHT PERSON WILL READ THIS AND TAKE SOME ACTION !

He's more concerned with getting the four-wheeler trail opened up at Warfield Park. Yeah, now there's some wholesome redneck entertainment for our young folks.

6:47....until they flip over and kill our children. And the parents stand there and ask themselves how it could happen. BECAUSE THEY PUT THEIR CHILDREN ON A DANGEROUS PIECE OF MACHINERY AND CALLED IT A TOY, that's why. Why do we continue to encourage this lifestyle?

Anonymous said...

Well, children should not be allowed on them. Parents should follow the guidelines.

I don't know about all of you but the change that was promised just ain't working for me, Instead of bringing the world and all its leaders together it seems to be going in the opposite direction along with my savings and 401k account. What an idiot he is by going around appolgizing for america for being so successful to the world abroad. He wants us all to tighten our purse strings while he and his family take 15 vacations in just a few months dragging along all their cronies on our dime ,the tax payers. The only change I see is me going broke while he and his family travel the world on my money. A leader is suppose to set an example. With all the tecnology he can just log on to a computer and chat anywhere in the world with other leaders for nothing , now thats change by showing how to use todays technology instead of spending millions of dollars to drag his family along with 3 to 4 jumbo jets, security,booking 5 star hotels for weeks for family and friends to shop while he is suppose to be taking care of business. ALL ON OUR DIME, THE TAXPAYER. Much like our mayor is doing.

The president and the mayor are cut from the same cloth.
