America has sunk to such lows that our Founding Fathers would be starting another Revolutionary war were they here to see it. One of the most vile and pernicious transgressions against the American people has been in place now for so long that nearly all Americans are unable to even see it. It’s called “Property Taxes”. this perversion is leveled against property owners, not merely at the time of sale, like most other taxes, but every year on the exact same piece of property. In short, it renders the purchaser of property to the position of renting that property from the State Government. It does this through the mechanism whereby if you fail to pay said property tax, the State Government seizes your property and sells it to someone else, regardless of whether you have fully paid for that property or not.
BEAVER, Pa. (AP) – A widow was given ample notice before her $280,000 house was sold at a tax auction three years ago over $6.30 in unpaid interest, a Pennsylvania judge has ruled.
The decision last week turned down Eileen Battisti’s request to reverse the September 2011 sale of her home outside Aliquippa in western Pennsylvania.
“I paid everything, and didn’t know about the $6.30,” Battisti said. “For the house to be sold just because of $6.30 is crazy.”
Battisti, who still lives in the house, said Monday that she plans to appeal to Commonwealth Court. That court earlier ordered an evidentiary hearing, which led to last week’s ruling.
Beaver County Common Pleas Judge Gus Kwidis wrote that the county tax claim bureau complied with notification requirements in state law before the auction. She had previously owed other taxes, but at the time of the sale she owed just $235, including other interest and fees.
“There is no doubt that (she) had actual receipt of the notification of the tax upset sale on July 7, 2011, and Aug. 16, 2011,” the judge wrote. “Moreover, on Aug. 12, 2011, a notice of sale was sent by first class mail and was not returned.”
The property sold for about $116,000, and most of that money will be paid to Battisti if further appeals are unsuccessful. An attorney for the purchaser did not return a phone message on Monday.
Joe Askar, Beaver County’s chief solicitor, said the judge got the decision right, based on the law.
“The county never wants to see anybody lose their home, but at the same time the tax sale law, the tax real estate law, doesn’t give a whole lot of room for error, either,” Askar said.
This story illustrates the reality of life here in America. The truth is very simple, your government see’s you, and everything you think you own, as their property, fit to be disposed of as they see fit, should you fail to obey them. The BLM was willing to shoot Cliven Bundy so that Harry Reid could steal land that the Bundy family had been grazing their cattle on for over 140 years. Pennsylvania is more than happy to throw Eileen Battisti out of her home, that her husband fully paid for, over a $6.30 tax on that property.
Sorry folks, this really is the reality that you live in, to the self anointed aristocratic political class, you really are serfs, no better than slaves.
