It's just a quarter of a penny.

At a quarter of a cent tax hike, if you annually bought $10,000 worth of taxable goods, then you would be out $25 or a little over $2 a month. (the average family of 4 spends $3420 annually on groceries)

The visitors to our county would help to pay this proposed increase, whereas if they raise the property tax, only property owners would pay.

I would be objectionable to a large increase in taxes, but is a quarter of a cent really going to be noticeable? If it doesn't pass, the loss of some services will be as well as the property tax bill.

Fighting over a quarter of a cent is not a worthy battle to be fought. Even worse is spending money on yard signs to oppose having to spend money.
