Do the Amish pay property taxes?
Since the Amish live a simple life style, how do they afford to pay taxes (as expensive as taxes are these days on large properties)?

The only tax the Amish are exempt from is Social Security:

Why do you think they sell all those delicious foods, and look at the awesome quality of their quilts. I buy beef jerky from them all the time.
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

Re: Do the Amish pay property taxes?
Actually the the land they have probably qualifies for the Clean and Green act which lowers the taxes on land for farmers. Most of the property tax is on the structures. If you have a nice house you get screwed. If you have a junky old farm house with no plumbing or electricity it will be appraised very low.

Even the land owned by the coal companies qualifies for the Clean and Green act. They only have to give 30 days notice before turning it into a strip mine.

If you are Amish there isn't much you can buy. Food, clothing, tools. No cars, no electronics gizmos.

So the govt gives people an incentive to lower the value on their property so they dont have to pay so much...

In Virginia we have a car tax that gives people the incentive to drive Clampett mobiles instead of a nice new car with high value...

This tax also helped put the car companies out of business.

Govt helps?

I dont think so!

Yes, as through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.

Colonies work! USA needs to build their own Dutch-style colonies in other lands and in 200 years we'll be as cool as the amish! Not in our own country of course as they'll own it, but in OUR colonies overseas which will surely thrive if we emulate the Dutchies!
