Home Equity Theft: When Tyrannical Government Steals Homes Over $8.41 In Unpaid Taxes

Let me state this very clearly and for the record:  Government does not have a right to the fruits of our labor.  They do not have a right to our property, and they do not have a right to our families.  Yet, time and time again, they impose immoral and unconstitutional taxes on our property so that, in essence, we never, ever, never own our property.  So what is to be done about tyrannical governments that steal your property for say $8.41 in unpaid taxes?  Founding father Thomas Jeffersons wrote, “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Jefferson had the idea in mind about such usurpations of authority as what I’m about to present to you.

In a recent piece at the Foundation of Economic Education, Brittany Hunter presented several cases in which local county governments that imposed immoral and unlawful property taxes stole the homes of people who put a lot of time, energy and money into their properties.

Furthermore, in the cases provided, most owed very little, when they shouldn’t have owed anything.

One case, in particular, which occurred in Michigan, the homeowner’s home was stolen by the county and sold off due to $8.41 in unpaid taxes!  That’s right, $8.41!

Brittany began her piece with a family that lived in New Jersey, but the father would drive 11 hours every weekend to work on repairs on a home in Michigan that they purchased.

She writes:

For three years, the pair scrimped and saved in order to fix up the four-unit property. On the weekends, Ramouldo would spend his days off making the 11-hour drive from New Jersey to Michigan to work on the house, making the much-needed repairs himself. In addition to the small complex, the family had purchased a small home next door. The plan was to renovate and rent out each unit and then use that money to help Ramouldo retire and move his family to the small home in Michigan, where the rest of their extended family resides.

Erica, who had seen her father work long hours and sacrifice to provide for her family over the years, was happy to help her father buy the property. She was eager to begin building her own financial legacy and saw the property as an excellent investment opportunity.

These plans were derailed, however, when their property was seized by Wayne County, Michigan, in 2017 and sold to a private buyer.

All because they unknowingly underpaid their tax bill—by $144.

Now, the Perez family unintentionally underpaid the tax.

However, the county decided to tack
