If a commercial or industrial firm was considering opening a facility in El Paso and the managers/owners did not want to move to El Paso they would probably rent apartments.
El Paso had the second highest property tax rate applied to apartments of the 50 largest cities in the United States during 2018.
Those property taxes get passed through to the renters.
For those who cannot afford to buy a house that means high taxes. For those that want to continue to live out of town but need a place to stay while they are here it means high taxes.
We deserve better
