Dear Tax Payer,
We are asking for your support in the J Doe vs DeKalb School District Complaint filed in District Court on October 4th.
A copy can be found at DeKalb County Online: https://tinyurl.com/dist428lawsuit
The city of DeKalb is among one of the highest property taxes in the United States and this is driving residents out of our community. This is a first step to start and identify the reasons for the excessive tax rates in all governmental bodies. All governmental bodies need to be transparent, honest, responsible, respectful and justify to DeKalb Tax Payers the reasons for the excessive taxes paid.
We think this lawsuit is just the start in leading to other questions and issues being identified. Including: Why the Dekalb School District 428 in 2009 spent $1,000,000 in Transportation and in 2016 it is over $8,200,000 ??? ( http://dekalbcounty.org/Financial/taxrates_files/17/taxcomprpt.pdf )
|School District 428||Year 2000||Year 2009||Year 2016|
|003 Bonds and Interest||1,839,628.00||4,220,640.00||4,742,062.00|

As a side note, more “J Doe” tax payers are needed. I would urge all residents to support a newly formed organization: Dekalb County
