One tax that should not have been raised over the past two years is the property tax for income property, which affects landlords — many of whom have received no rent going on 20 months thanks to the unconstitutional eviction moratorium.

Do they think that landlords, who provide the most essential of essential services, should not be paid? This especially hurt small landlords and created a shortage of affordable rentals.
