74% of Omaha's Finest Don't Even Pay City Property Taxes!
With the likes of the four Suttle marionettes (including TAX AND SPEND TOM MULLIGAN) about to pass the police union contract which is itself a vote for the mayor's outrageous spending and tax increase we thought it was interesting to consider where all the policemen/policewomen live
Of the 822 on the force 300 (36%) live in the city, 214 (26%) live within the current wheel tax assessment area while 266 (32%) live in another county and 42 (5%) live in another state. So, in other words 74% of our police force doesn't even pay City of Omaha property taxes and 37% don't even pay city wheel taxes.
If you get your donuts for free at Krispy Kreme the entertainment/food tax apparently doesn't matter much either.
