Here follows the notes I brought to the meeting and handed out.
Some fundamental questions about Property Taxes
Background:
1. In 1878 the first constitution for the state of Washington was ratified. In that constitution it states: (from http://www.crtf.org/waconst.html#Admin)
“Section 23.
All lands within the state are declared to be allodial, and feudal tenures, with all their incidents, are prohibited.”
2. Somehow, since that time, our property titles have been converted from allodial to a fee-simple form.
3. If I don't pay my property taxes, the county can take (alienate) my property from my control. This effectively makes property taxes a type of rent.
• It appears that many people claim that it is possible to regain allodial title to land by bringing forth the land patent into the current owners name: (see http://www.breakthematrix.com/node/9497
http://freedom-school.com/land_patents-allodial_title.pdf http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?topic=5023.0 )
Questions:
1. How is it that we the people gave up allodial property rights in favor of Fee Simple titles over the past 150 years in every single country in this country? When did we grant this change to the counties and states?
2. Is it true that the county holds two lists of properties on its tax roles - those that are taxed and those that are not?
3. Why are these facts not taught as history in our government schools - including our universities?
4. Is it true that we are entitled to pursue allodial titles in King County and thus remove ourselves from the jurisdiction of property taxes?
