Kansas to consider tightening limits on local property taxes

I'm not suggesting that the values are incorrect. The problem is that government is not adjusting the rate downward to generate what is needed...not whatever they want to collect.

Not at all. I'm merely noting that government determines the value and the rate.

Show me documentation for what you believe to be a lie. I am citing government data.
