First homeowners are obligated to pay property taxes to their local government. Then the same municipality mandates associations for all newly constructing dwelling units, forcing the owners to pay assessments in addition to property taxes for the services those taxes were initially intended to pay for. But along the way, these same associations have been granted incredible powers and many have abused those powers. The ensuing horror stories have convinced some legislators there is a dire need for some adult supervision in residential America. But, unlike other laws enacted by our legislators, the homeowners will be taxed yet AGAIN for that oversight.
