Once again we have "Republican" politicians in Austin Texas lying to you about their attempts to reduce property taxes. Its simply more bloviating from the ultra rich who don't care that people are losing their homes and families due to the highest property taxes in the USA now. (excluding NY and CA) The property tax could be eliminated and replaced by a sales tax overnight. Simply look at the total retail sales numbers for last year, then compare that to the amount of property taxes actually collected last year, and add that much to the sales tax this year. Texans become free and all the bills are paid.
