    But back to the task at hand. 19,679 posts and nobody has a solution to this housing thing yet?

    Should tax be used as a weapon to reduce STRs and then we will figure out what to spend the money on later?

    Oh, that's easy. Stalinist authoritarian overthrow of our government, and an apartment/flat for every family in the new housing projects. Comrade.

    Well I didn't say that they wouldn't....read the post and pause first before racing to your keyboard. Just a friendly suggestion...maybe people wouldn't razz you so much if you did that.

    You should do B, but the other faceless bastard should do A. We went thru this when Harry sold his condo in big sky. Were you high that day? oh never mind...

    Fred, sell it and buy a place in Aurora. You can easily commute to ski Breck on the weekends if you miss it.

    This is going to come across salty, which is not my intent, but yeah, that goes without saying. If we're going to be adults, we have to advocate for -- or at least accept -- taxes on ourselves. I vote and pay for school bonds even though I have no kids in the schools here because I recognize it's a net benefit for society. (PPS catastrophically mismanages their funds and would benefit from an auditor with some teeth, but that's a separate conversation.) Would I like to not have to pay taxes? Of course! But I recognize paying taxes is the cost of living in a more-or-less civil society, and it's worth it.

    If we're not willing to put our money where our mouth is by paying the higher taxes / prices driven by tax increases, then yeah, we should STFU. But I imagine the people advocating for higher taxes on STRs in this thread are willing to pay those higher prices -- I know that I am.

    Why sell it when you could make a mint using it as an STR?

    You are right but, there needs to be an age cap on having to ante up for education, especially if you chose not to breed. 67 seems right to me.

    And even more so since state and local taxes are no longer a Fed deduction.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    I mean, I hear you, but once you go down that rabbit hole, it gets messy quick. Some would say they shouldn't have to support the libraries, the cyclists wouldn't want to pay for roads and the drivers wouldn't want to pay for bike paths, etc. etc. I'm willing to pay through the nose for all that crap, just really wish there was a hard-nosed fiscal conservative watching every dime spent like a hawk.
