High TaxesI just moved here from the Northest, the New York City area and I'm considering buying a house in the Woodlands. I'm very concerned as too why the taxes are so high in this area, almost the same as the NYC area. A house valued at $500,000 in New York state has a tax of 10,000 while a house in the Woodlands with a value of $250,000 has a tax of $9,000 , something is wrong when a low tax state such as Texas has excessive taxes on property worth half the amount , compared too a high tax state such as New York with a state tax and a high cost of living. The concern I have is where is the money going???? These type of taxes have driven New Yorkers into poverty, the elderly, the young familys , the students,the average person , the middle-class, single parents etc,,,,,,,, everybody , because of bloated government and thier salaries and spending by government. Is this the fate of "The Woodlands" in 20 years , a $250,000 house and 18,000 in taxes and poverty for alll the residents?
