    Property tax reform bill

    Maybe I should have added the word "least." Texas, according to the Tax Foundation website, is ranked #5 least tax burden while it was ranked #19 in 2017. Of those top 5 least states, Alaska and Texas are the only states without an income tax. Both Alaska and Texas have large revenues from...

    Real estate investing question for the real estate gurus?

    I rented homes in the San Antonio, Plano, and Allen areas for 20 years, until December 2018. They were all single family homes. I never had a home go vacant for more than maybe 75 days, and that was usually due to upgrades. Fortunately, I had good renters for 4 to 6 years but mostly for about 2...

    How Do You Feel About the Growth in the Area?

    I have been in this area since 1970. LBJ was a big highway in the middle of nowhere. Richardson was the big suburb in those days. No one could tell you where Plano or Frisco were. The intersection at Hwy 289 (Preston Rd) and Hwy 121 (Sam Rayburn Tollway) was made up of two little two lane...

    Pennsylvania Man Thinks Roundabouts Cause Tornaders

    I would like to see more roundabouts. Of course they wouldn't work on all major streets. If you have been to Grayhawk circle, which is more of a circle than a roundabout, but its a really nice use of a flood zone.

    NTTA Tolls for OOS (Out of State) plates

    The rental car companies have an additional service fee that they add to the toll. So if you rent a car for a long out-of-town trip you might avoid NTTA roads. I got caught in Florida the service fee was $25 back in 2007. I think the toll was $3.

    Energy Audit/ HVAC Airflow Balancing recommendation

    I had a two story home with 2 HVAC units in the attic. The upstairs bedroom closest to the HVAC was cold as ice while the room furthest away, which also got more late sun, was always hot. The answer was to add adjustable valves at the plenum, the place where the ducts originate on the AC unit...

    Look Yukon, you bragged on redditt that you closed down this forum. Congratulations. We all get it, you like being a trouble maker and you like trolling with nonsense, because maybe daddy never paid attention to you. Whatever is driving you to annoy people here and on Redditt, you don't get...

    I guess sometimes you just have to try something new. But everyone hopes that you figure out the consequences of that decision.

    FRISCO Best Place to Live

    Frisco is a really nice palace to live. The worst part for me is airport access because I travel so much. The second worst part is going to Dallas for concerts, games, etc. It been around 15 years since I went to a State Fair. When I was 30 - 50 years old, I loved the growth in this area...

    You're at a high altitude, I can see why you would be out of breath riding a bike up hill. Of course being cardio fit and eating right makes a huge difference, everyone has great ideas to make your body more efficient, but your lungs, heart, blood cells, etc., can only carry so much oxygen...

    Frisco Online / Lifestyle Frisco Merger

    It’s the nature of political forums to get harsh and for tempers to flair and it costs money to police forums. So, if you don’t like a particular person then using a block is a great way to stop fighting. Like I said NISHI and STW were the only ones I blocked and it was not for what they said...

    I think people should have used the old block posters system and block posters they didn't want to see. I have a gut level feeling about freedom of speech and moderators of speech, because its all so subjective. Of course this is a company's website and moderator's can cost money and time and...
