I got my first installment of 2009 tax bill in my mailbox on Saturday. To be honest, I didn’t even open it. The first installment of taxes was always 50% of the last tax bill. There are no big increases in the first installment. It’s kind of dull.
Many are complaining (rightfully) that the installments are too close together. Another thing to complain about is this: The first installment is now larger than in previous years. It’s now 55% of last year’s tax bill.
