A few things
1) why not instead of posting here contact the proper tax officials to see if exemptions are possible? (Which should have been done well before now btw)
2) its ok to make money by owning property in a district you dont live in but its immoral for them to tax you accordingly? Its for the betterment of the community which you happen to own property in.
3) i dont have children that go to lufkin either but i live in the district so tough titty. This is not something that is unique to the lufkin area.
4) saying that holding elections at multiple schools and the administrative building being a conflict of interest is kind of ironic considering you rent to people in the school district with kids in school (who cant vote) yet think you should be excluded because you dont live here or have kids in school. Wouldnt it also have been a conflict of interest to allow you to vote as well? It seems conflict of interest really means i dont like the outcome therefore outrage.
Good luck selling the rent house. Hope you get what you want and more.
