Default Restricted access vs property taxes

Would one of you lawyers guys write the beach’s county attorney’s to pause paying property taxes if you cannot use your property? Seems fair if you can’t go then you shouldn’t pay property taxes for the time non permanent residence are restricted. Thoughts?

Do you pay taxes year round? Or only when your there? Can we all stop to appreciate how much this sucks for everyone. And stop worrying about your first world problems of not going to your beach house...
it sucks we know, it could be worse.
you could be poor and dealing with an epidemic
you could maybe lose your one and only property because your not working.

just let it go... you can’t come down to the beach because thousands of people in the world are dying.

poor you

Yeah, and I was driving down the highway today, and one lane was closed for repairs. I want half my fuel taxes back, can somebody write a letter?

I assume the local police are still protecting your property. The local fire department will show up if their is a fire. Etc. etc.

I believe this is the reference the op is looking for.

"nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation"

I'm pretty sure that limiting access to a town because of a pandemic or other health emergency is not a "taking" of private property for public use.

It is scary to me the authoritarian measures that have been discussed and sometimes taken the precedent that sets and how easily people will accept and many times beg for an authoritarian overload to protect them at all cost no matter what freedoms they have to give up.

First of all dlandts, If you actually think you own this property due to the fact that you pay taxes on it every year along with having a title, try going a couple of years without paying the county the taxes they charge and then you will discover the true owner.

Well, I paid the public school assessment on our property taxes before we had kids. Where do I get my refund? On the other hand, we have 3 kids in the public school system now but only paying one set of school assessment. I hope no one finds out we have are underpaying or maybe it's just a wash?

The United States government cannot physically keep illegals from crossing our borders, so I find it hard to believe a county sheriffs department will be able to keep out US citizens from entering their county.

Tell that to the people who have 2nd homes on the outer banks of NC. With 2 bridges giving access, pretty easy for a couple local Mounties to stop traffic and turn around non-permanent residents.

Actually in the United States the sheriff is the highest law enforcement official in the perspective jurisdiction. They can absolutely keep people from entering their county.


under specific conditions, which in this case would be the State of Emergency.

Is North Carolina like many others in the sea charge non-residents double or more for property taxes compared to “locals?”

Oh boo, poor baby, we feel so bad for you. Yes, you should absolutely be able to escape the large city you live in and head to your beach home during a national emergency after all you paid for it. I'm sure you have no COVID cooties but if you do the local hospital which is woefully underequipped for this will gladly take a ventilator away from one of those low-income townies who are only good for working on your house when you need something done, washing your boat or bringing you food at a restaurant. After all, they are not as worthy as you are being a property owner and all.

Not too many years ago ALL Americans would have raised hell about these restrictions. We have voluntarily given up 5 of the 10 Bill of Rights Freedoms, for some reason.

Now we've been reduced, somehow, to class warfare. It is pathetic.
