Do rising property taxes irritate you?
When taxes have our attention, chances are higher that we will check up on how those tax dollars ($8.6 billion statewide in property taxes in 2012) are being spent.

- Shouldn’t there be protection from tax bills growing faster than value increases?
- How can I know how much my local governments should be spending?
