Letter: Property taxes are cause for concern

To the editor:

I would like to know what has happened to make our real estate taxes in Glen Ellyn go up so much in the past 5 to 10 years. There was a house listed at $550,000 and 2013 taxes were $17,000, so when the owner finally pays off their 30 year mortgage, they would have paid $510,000 additional in taxes, and that's if they don't go up, which won't happen. It is going to reach a breaking point of people being taxed out of their homes and then they won't be able to sell their house. Our schools are good, but the amount we pay in taxes, our schools should be ranked in at least the top 50 every year. Something needs to be done about this or it could affect us all.
