They raised car taxes 30+% (Shut up about a 15% discount!. It's 30% on top of that!)

The Private garbage collectors we are forced to use suck! BOS says we have no control. We are busy renaming 100 year old roads.

BOS supervises 10% of the garbage pick up in the county. They have run out of garbage pails for those people.

VOTE THEM OUT: Don't make Fairfax the next Arlington!!! Or, worse, the next Alexandria.

God you are stupid. What is worse you are deliberately choosing to be stupid. Yes our current BOS suck, but the reasons you mention are just ridiculously wrong. The BOS cut car tax rates. They just did not cut them enough to offset the valuation increase of certain (not all cars). Even without the rate cut though few car owners would have seen their car taxes increase by 30%. Private garbage pickup is something that most Fairfax homeowners wanted, up to this year.

Now let's talk about that terrible Alexandria. For most of Alexandria the residential property tax rate is below the combined residential property rate for properties in Fairfax County not located in special tax districts. Alexandria does not have a commercial real estate tax add-on. Alexandria cut its car tax basis for assessment to 78% while Fairfax only cut its basis for assessment to 85%. Finally Alexandria chose a few years ago to embark on an infrastructure renewal project funded by current tax revenues rather than relying on bonded debt like Fairfax County does. Bad Alexandria.

-I am stupid stupid? Did they go up? 15% reduction on a 45% increase on a used car tax is not a 30% tax? Pot assay hello to kettle. What a dumb ass.

-Who wanted private garbage with NO CONTROL of THE PROCESS? If these people built decks a contractors, they would go after them for breach of contract. the BOS has NO CONTRO and can supply garbage cans to 10% of the people.

Dumb ass.

Thank you for admitting you are stupid. Admitting it is the first step to getting better. The next thing you need to do is to stop relying on people like Arthur Purves of the Fairfax Taxpayer Alliance and start learning the nuts and bolts of how things work before leaping to any conclusions.

Virginia Code section 58.1-3321 only applies to real property taxes. That is what a Republican controlled Virginia House of Delegates decided back in 2007. When it comes to car taxes last year's rate is this year's rate, regardless of what happens to the values of vehicles, unless the locality affirmatively says otherwise. If a county lowers its actual rate, or if it lowers its effective rate by lowering the value that the tax is assessed on as Fairfax has done, then it is a rate cut. If your car was worth the same or less than it was last year, as many cars were, then your taxes would have gone down. If your car increased in value by less than 15% your tax would have gone down.

Also aren't you conservatives the ones who favor free markets? So why are free markets bad when it comes to private trash hauling services?

My neighborhood was served by the two big boys. Service sucked. So a new company showed up. They offer twice a week pickup, they are reliable and their rates are only slightly higher than the two big boys. People are jumping ship to sign up with them. Isn't that the way you say things are supposed to work?

The BOS is planning to build a low income ghetto at the government center. This will doom Fairfax Corner and the nearby Wegmans when the shoplifters and muggers take over.
