Moon Quote:

No, renters pay a LOT of real estate taxes. Who do you think pays the tax on this rather large building I'm living in? It's just magically waived? Renters pay it. 
Are you screwing those poor people?
I think we need rent controls.

My parents not only owed property, but didn't get the advantage of it, because we all went to private schools. If it would have been my choice, I would have gone to public schools and spent the money, but  maybe my parents were right.


Moon, are you Donald Trump?

Real Estate Mogul.

Well then, tell me how big your real estate tax bill is? Are you saying you get a bill mailed to you?

I guess I learn something everyday, section 8 renters pay real estate taxes!

Ken, I make my own speed figures. I make figures for every race that the horse has run at the distance on a fast/firm track. I've got quite a complicated program that I wrote which does it all automatically with a minimum of data entry.

But the biggest part, probably close to 60% is visual handicapping. Spending the whole time the horse is in the paddock and going onto the track watching them. Usually I don't even take my eyes off them for more than a few seconds until I bet.

I own about every handicapping book written and have several videos on visual handicapping.

I don't think you screw anybody, Ken. I think you are probably a good businessman. I do think that you shouldn't whine about paying taxes, though.

What I remember about Section 8, is that these are people on the bottom of the food chain.
You are guaranteed rent payments.
I think you still pay the real estate taxes.

Moon, are you a slum lord?
Just asking.

Come on, Mel. Does this building not pay real estate taxes? And where do they get the money to pay those taxes?

I suppose you could argue that Section 8 people do pay real estate taxes. But, since they get a subsidy that more than covers those taxes, it's at least a push.

Moon,

One of your best posts!  thumbs up

I was wondering what we have in common and it is the love of handicapping!

And you're continuing your little vendetta in that threat showed respect for Luke Kruytbosch, how?


Sometimes I have to drop down to your level to try and show you how insensitive your comments are.You just don't get it.The comment about LUKE'S  weight was insensitive and you fail to acknowledge it.You really are an idiot.

Little confession time.

I purchased a harness software program by
Bob Pandolfo

He does have a T-Bred program that is similar.

I download the programs and I do my own line selections.

The horses are rated in value.

I choose to play or pass races.

I usually play my first choice but only when the odds dictate it.

Last Saturday I was lights out.

Sunday I played three races, all losers.  Got nip at the wire on one of them would have made my night.

I am discipline and patient.

I think I am one of the better handicappers out there.

That's it.

I need to get some rest.

Have to work tomorrow and play tennis.

I do protest real estate taxes in Cook County.

I was successful in 2004 and 2005.  Reduced my taxes by 15%.
I was overassessed.  This is one piece of property

I am working on 2003 taxes.  I have a court date in September.
I have two school districts who are fighting me.
I won in 2002.  I think the School Districts almost died when I won.

Holy Cow!
What a neat experience.

I would have been the towel boy in the locker room.

I play singles tennis in IL and I am in two leagues at the moment.  Currently I play in Elgin and the near north side in Chicago.
I am 3.5

Lost in a tournment on Saturday.  It was a heart breaker.

How about you?

Tell me about yourself?

I was a pretty good player a few years ago, I played in college but I hardly play anymore and I'm about 30 lbs over my playing weight. Probably no better than a 3.5 or low 4.0 player at this point. I still have a rocket 100+ serve but the rest of my game has deteriorated horribly.

I learned how to play under the tutelage of a tennis pro who coached a #1 doubles team in the 90's O'Brien/palmer. he needed help maintaining the clay courts at a country vlub so i started working for him. in turn he taught me how to play AND teach the sport.

I paid my way through college and grad school teaching tennis and made the connection that got me a career which i started last week teaching tennis.

I tried out and made ballboy in 99 and worked 99-01 at the open. a truly once in a lifetime experience. some highlights and thoughts:

Kafelnikov was the nicest on tour... gave me a racquet

Arnaud Clement is the biggest prick in tennis

biggest match I ever worked was supersaturday 01. I worked the end of safin-martin and the beginning of Sampras vs I believe it was hewitt.

Moon. The property owner pays the RE taxes. What WORLD do you live on? lmao.  Also, who do you think pays for the repairs? Carpet, paint, exterior, mechanicals, heating/cooling, grounds, etc. is all maintained by the owner of the building. It's people like you who probably flush dirty underware down the toilet - then the Super has to call a plumber. You get NO 1098 on the interest because you have no mortgage. The owner can give you a 30 day notice whenever they want to and YOU cannot do NOTHING about it! PERIOD! You are owned by the Owner. Always remember that when you are pissing in your toilet - it's really not yours!

Come on, Mel. Does this building not pay real estate taxes? And where do they get the money to pay those taxes?

I do know the building I live in pays $42,000 in property taxes per year, and that's a modest 18 unit building on a small lot in a modest neighborhood. Us tenants pay it all as part of our rent, but of course, the owner gets the tax deduction. By way of comparison, the taxes on a $3 million house down by the lake front are $28,000 per year. It's less per tenant than the individual home owner of course, and in theory, more kids could be going to school from our building than the $3 million home, if we had families with kids. But please, no one, don't claim renters pay no property tax. There's no landlord in the world carrying that out of the goodness of his heart.

Really, mel, this is one the dumbest posts I've seen you make and there have been some whoppers.

First of all, My name is Steve Mr. Big Bird. 2nd, if its so easy to operate & chase down dead beat tenants, WHY DON'T YOU BUY A BUILDING? For a "smart" guy you're pretty stupid. Renting is like burning money and the landlord has to always put up with loser tenants who don't pay! If you ask me, owning and living in a home is the best way to live. You truly are a socialist at heart.

Steve, Mel, you're one and the same.

I don't recall. Did I say was easy owning a building? No, I didn't. But you are a complete moron if you think that the owners don't raise the rents high enough to cover the property taxes.

I thought you were in this business. You must not be very good at if you think of your clients as a bunch of dead beats.

Home ownership makes sense for a lot of people, but not all. I bought a condo just over a year ago and then rescinded it after they supplied the facts, I forget what they call that book that the law requires them to supply. It didn't make sense, once I ran all the numbers and had all the facts. It was kind of sleazy on the part of the Real Estate people, but I've found Real Estate people to be just above used car salespeople in terms of sleaziness.
