Heard this on KMAX Inland Northwest News yesterday.
Pullman pays 46% of Whitman County's property taxes. Remember, WSU is exempt from property tax.
That's stunning. In a county with an area of 2,150.37 square miles, a large part of the property tax revenue comes from an area of maybe 4-5 square miles.
That's one reason I would like to see more housing in the ag zone of the county. Let's spread the tax burden around a bit, shall we?
