In an interesting turn of timeliness, given my last post on fees vs. taxes, Ben Cunningham's anti-revenue website is again promoting Spring Hill's lack of property taxes, without reference to how they may be paying for their services. We've seen before that Spring Hill continues no doubt to leech money off of the rest of us via "state-shared revenues" while promoting themselves as a no-tax alternative to Tennessee's other communities. If running a town without taxes looks like a mirage, then it probably is a mirage.
UPDATE: While there are not property tax costs to living in Spring Hill, there seem to be other social and cultural costs imposed by local government. And the cost to your sense of security seems considerable (+40.7% since 2005). We may not see them raising their own revenues now, but the increasing demands on their government will eventually crack that nut (unless they find a way to continue to raise their local fees and to rely on state largess).
