Re: “Halifax's "tax reform" favours wealthy with higher value homes

What about the other side of the argument? The 'rich' are already paying higher income taxes and more HST because they spend more money.

Why should they pay more for the same access to the same services and facilities as anyone else? Property taxes are about paying for municipal services. Just because a person can afford a better property doesn't mean that they will cost more per capita than anyone else. Providing municipal services is cheaper when population density is higher. So, it is more expensive to provide services to rural home-owners, whether they are rich or poor.

Should you pay a higher license plate fee because your car is a a brand new luxury model or less because it's a 10 year old junker? Should you pay more for a burger and fries just because you can afford to? With all other goods and services, it's up to the individual to choose the level and quality they want and how much they are willing to pay.
