If they had an olympic contest for the highest tax rate in the nation it looks like El Paso would come in at second place in another year or so if the EPISD bond issue passes.
In Climbing to the top we wrote that El Paso taxpayers only had to clmb over an effective property tax of 2.675% in order to be higher than Milwaukee. The report we got our numbers from put us at 2.640%.
The city, county, and hospital district are working hard to get us a silver or gold too.
We deserve better
