Regressive Taxes by City Council; "Greensboro increased its vehicle tax from $10 to the maximum allowed"
The City of Greensboro made poor people pay more as a percentage of income,
so the wealthy pay less and they have been doing it for years
$30 - $10 = $20 increase for every car in every household
If the average household has two cars, it's a $40 annual increase
$40 / $100,000 = 0.0004 increase
$40 / $50,000 = 0.0008 increase
$40 / $30,000 = 0.00133 increase
$40 / $20,000 = 0.002 increase

to pay for handouts to rental owning financial backers
They don't mind kicking 'East Greensboro' residents in the nuts a little bit more,
but that City Council's African American league is in on it is disgusting
Greensboro's City Council is going to tax the poor to please their paymaster donors
who make a whole lot more,
and will be taxed less by a 'liberal' group of 'Say Yes' men and women
As the economy tanks,
poorer citizens in Guilford County will be paying for what wealthy landlords etc...
won't have to pay because it's a vehicle tax instead of a property tax
A tax that takes a larger percentage from low-income people than from high-income people.
A tax that takes a larger percentage of the income of low-income people than of high-income people.
...it hits lower-income individuals harder.
Sales taxes...are generally considered to be regressive
...because expenses for food, clothing and shelter tend to make up a higher percentage
of a lower income consumer's overall budget.
...even though the tax may be uniform (such as 7% sales tax),
lower income consumers are more affected by it because they are less able to afford it.
...a regressive tax imposes a greater burden (relative to resources) on the poor than on the rich
— there is an inverse relationship between the tax rate and the taxpayer's ability to pay
as measured by assets, consumption, or income.
Regressive taxes tend to reduce the tax incidence of people with higher ability-to-pay,
as they shift the incidence disproportionately to those with lower ability-to-pay.
