Reduce the Growing Tax Burden In Fairfax County! sign now

Whereas, Fairfax County, Virginia's real estate assessments have increased dramatically for the third straight year;

Whereas, the average residential tax bill will increase by an estimated $427 this year if the tax rate is not decreased.

Whereas, this increase, added to the two prior years, will result in the average residential bill going up approximately 38\% in just three years.

Whereas, while this rapidly increasing tax burden affects all Fairfax County taxpayers, it is particularly damaging to retirees on fixed incomes and much of Fairfax's middle class;

Now, therefore, the undersigned, as taxpayers in Fairfax County, Virginia, demand that the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors provide a meaningful real estate tax rate reduction, to at least partially decrease this rapidly increasing tax burden we have been experiencing.

    My house assessment has risen fron $141K in Jan '99 to $219K in Jan '02. Thats a 55% increase in 3 years. If Fairfax County needs revenues, they should be sponsering an equitable tax such as a small increase in the sales or perhaps on gas. At least that w

    Taxes are not the answer to every problem; they are not even the answer to most problemsw; I cannot think of a problem for which they are the best answer. NO NEW TAXES--and reduce those real estate assessments. That is the worst kind of tax, an underhande

    Constant increases in real estate taxes place the burden of compensating for the economic slump squarely on the shoulders of the home owners, many of whom have also been adversely impacted by the recession. This is an unequal and unfair burdening of the p

    Increasing tax rates will further depress the state economy and lead to lower tax revenues in the long run. Try lowering taxes, you might be plesantly surprised at the results! JFK was!

    I strongly oppose this type of hidden tax increase. Tax rates should always be decreased commensurate with increased assessments, unless the voters are asked to ratify a tax increase.
