Taxes, taxes and more taxes. When is it going to end? I watch the paper daily seeing how many homes are being sold on the courthouse steps. Why? They cannot pay their taxes or the mortgage on their homes. Just recently an article in the paper stated over 1,500 (which was lower than last year at over 1,600) were to be auctioned off on Nov.7 which the banks will pay them to protect their interests or someone else paying them will give the owner 18 months to come up with the money plus interest to keep from losing their home.
