Can you afford an 8% tax increase?

An 8% increase on:
• Cars
• Motorcycles
• Boats
• Rental Homes & Apartments
• Business Property
• Business Equipment


The tax increase will also affect your residence.


Could your family use an 8% raise this year? 

The Pickens County School District Administration thinks they need your money more than you do.

There is an attempt to increase property taxes in Pickens County 
School District an additional 8%.



Go to to find out how you can sign a petition to stop the tax increase.


Contact your School Board members and tell them to do this: 


#1 Stop spending money on wants and learn to follow a budget like the tax payers must do.


#2 Don't kick the can down the road; stop raiding the escrow account to pay down debt.

$11,600 is the school DEBT each house owes thanks to our Pickens County School District board.

"In education, they say either property taxes have to go up, or we'll have poor education – that's a false choice."

                ~ Gov. Scott Walker

The school district is trying to raise property taxes at a time when people are struggling to make ends meet. The final vote should take place by March 23, 2015.


The district administration is saying there is a financial crisis, so it either has to raise taxes or cut teachers or close schools. They are trying to create the impression there is a financial crisis, when there isn't one.

2007 there has been a 37% tax increase in the Pickens County School District with no increase in number of student enrollment.

The School District of Pickens County Wants More of Your Money.

Don't Fall for Scare Tactics!

It's Not a Crisis!

Their Wants and Mismanagement of your Money Does Not Constitute a Crisis!  


Be there, be heard, don’t be plundered!
