Home ownership should be tax free

Kudos to Melissa Shaffer for her recent letter to the editor on real estate tax.

She is totally correct in stating home ownership should not be taxed.

The politicians rammed a proposed bill down our throats with no consideration for the good people who worked to own a home, raised children in it and leave a legacy of good and happy memories — not to mention the brave and caring men and women who fought and died in battle to save the world who came home anticipating many years of happiness now to be taxed just because they want to live in peace in a home of their own.

To tax the most precious thing an American owns is sinful. Where is the justice?
