How should I vote on this Texas Amendment?Submitted by i_vote_here on Mon, 10/28/2013 - 11:30
Texas will be voting on nine proposed amendments soon. The first amendment will grant property tax exemption to the spouses of military persons killed in action after Jan. 1st, 2014. This would not apply to spouses who remarry. Disabled vets have been receiving this exemption for two years.
Here's my quandary. I would like everyone to have tax free property. This would be true ownership.
However, would this amendment give an unfair advantage to those employed by the government?
Would the clause regarding marriage discourage widows from legal marriage?
Or should this be regarded as a good first step towards eliminating property tax and caring for those harmed by war?
