I have paid my “fire tax” under protest. They say I receive a benefit that the city homeowner don’t.
Okay, now I see that the city folks (Oakland and Stockton) are receiving a benefit that the county folks don’t get, enhanced law enforcement protection by CHP.
The city folks now need to pay a “fee” (tax) for this service that I do not receive.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
