You pay higher taxes when developers build new homes. Thanks, Republicans!

Should you pay higher taxes when a developer builds new homes?

Remember that new homes require additional roads, sidewalks, traffic lights and also create more traffic and the need for new schools. In the wake of the 2016 pro-developer Proffer Reform Bill, Virginia residents are now responsible for paying more than ever for the infrastructure required when new real estate developments are built. You can thank the deep pockets of the home-building industry who lobbied Republicans to choose big business over the needs of communities and families.
