Just a Thought

The Memphis City Council took the city school system to court in 2008 over the council’s belief that city taxpayers are double-taxed for schools. The city lost, and it now owes as much as $57 million (though the final tab might be less).

But if paying that tab requires a special tax bill to be issued to city residents – one of a few options on the table – does that mean residents are now being triple-taxed for schools?
