Our Last Check for Property Tax

You can never truly escape taxes, but one tax that I am grateful to see absent from my new year budget is the $3,700 expense for property taxes. That annual bill takes a sizable chunk out of any homeowner's bank account. By my calculations, that's a bit more than $10 a day in my pocket for a year; or over 123 days of good eating on my current per diem rate with Ketchum; or about 150 days at a campground with an ocean view; or six discounted round trips from destinations in Central or South America back to the States to see family. Our last check for property tax is in the mail.
