The Tax Man
Local officials should remember that everyone pays taxes
One thing that some people need to get out of their head is that there is no such thing in Jefferson County, Tennessee or anywhere else as a "non-taxpayer." Anyone who lives, works, shops, or eats in Jefferson County pays taxes here. Just because you don't own property-and, by the way, this writer does-doesn't mean you don't pay taxes. Did you buy groceries at the Food City this week? You paid Jefferson County taxes. How about eat at the Gondolier? You paid taxes in Jefferson County. Stop at the Dunkin Donuts in the Wilco Hess in White Pine? County Commission is going to get your dime. Pay your property taxes this year? Need I say more?
