    Everybody is eager to know how the COP is dealing with property tax. Of course the PNM administration has the right to use the tax money for national projects. Therefore the property tax is a good tool to improve the ecconomy.What to do with all the poor home owners who cannot afford paying tax? It is up to the governement to give tax excemptions for investors for a certain period of time.However, if there is no tax on land and property a lot of people would have their property idling and waiting until they will get a maximum of profit on their property without working on it.Also a COP leader shouldnderstand this is not for the best of the productivity of the nation.
