I'm not arguing with John Mills. I'm arguing with you. What was described in the thread was a tax on property. John Mills is describing a tax on rent. He might be taking a different perspective, anyway -- I don't know.

Technically, the burden of a tax on rent would be on the landlord, but the landlord pays with money from the tenants. So when taxes go up, rent goes up, because the rent is where the landlord gets the money to pay the tax.

Torrere: Oh. I get what you're saying now. Oops.
