Please read this important message about actions needed from counties on state budget cuts and what you can do to help protect county taxpayers.
It is imperative that county officials show their legislators, local media, civic clubs and taxpayers how state budgets cuts will adversely affect county services and local taxes. Local property taxpayers should not bear the brunt of state budget decisions.
You can localize the disturbing facts about budget cuts, which will have more impact than generalized statewide numbers reported from the Capitol. The TAC Legislative Department has created a press kit which includes a cover letter and, most importantly, several documents created by county officials and TAC. We strongly encourage you to use these models to illustrate how proposed state budget cuts will affect your communities.
