Dear fellow tax hikers, our investigative prowess has uncovered more exciting information about our tax-hiking Goddess Roxanne Qualls. We have always loved her because of her intense efforts to raise taxes on everyone and everything, from sports stadiums to streetcars to shiny new jails and everything in-between.
Even as she is forever busy raising taxes, we have learned that Roxanne manages to avoid paying her fair share of local taxes. So who *is* paying her taxes??? YOU are!
Roxy owns a Lytle Place condo in downtown Cincinnati valued at $287,470. Yet she only pays taxes on $37,000 of it. 87% of this property is tax-abated. This results in Qualls paying significantly less towards local levies and assessments than anyone else in a $287k property. For example, Roxanne will pay a whopping $11.24 this year for the Senior Services levy, when she should be paying $87. But this is no problem - the rest of you get to make up the difference.
When Roxanne Qualls says *we* need to pay more taxes, what she really means is: YOU need to pay more taxes. She sure ain't paying.
Another highly important figure living in this building, and receiving the same sweetheart tax deal, is City Council candidate Mike Moroski. Moroski, btw, happens to be an avid reader of this blog. Moroski lives in a $430,000 condo but pays taxes as if he was living in a $37,000 hut. The rest of you get to pay that $393,000 difference.
Moroski often likes to say that he'd be happy to pay higher taxes. What he means by that is - he'll be happy to have YOU pay higher taxes for him. His money goes to far more important things than paying his share of local taxes.
We applaud all of you, our loyal readers, for your willingness to pay higher taxes so that Roxanne Qualls doesn't have to pay hers. And there are still so many more taxes to raise. You will continue to pay more so Qualls can pay less.
