Writer says farmers are getting crushed by taxes


Dear Editor,
In six years’ time, we’ve seen nearly a 400 percent increase in our property taxes. This year alone, the tax per acre for 2016 is $62. In 2016 we had to pay 14 percent in property tax alone of the total gross income per acre, not net, but total gross income. The cost of inputs continues to be out of hand while the price for corn and soybeans are 30 to 40 percent lower the past three years.
