Good info on deeds..agrees with concepts of what I have also read on this topic.
The real question is: Does anybody have first-hand experience with actuallly filing
a land patent/allodial deed on their property and having it be "effective" with
the local taxing authorities? I've not heard of suceess story in Texas, although heard
(stories) in another state who supposedly got a "you're exempt" letter back from them...
wish I had kept details but cannot confirm.
My supposition is that it (may) help/at least delay with the "land grab", by "biospheres"
and "Heritage Rivers", etc. (per a land patent researcher I know)etc.
FYI: Just talked with a fella the other day (here in Texas) whose land had NOT been "rendered"
but they found him anyway and put a lien on his property for not paying property taxes. He's
trying to work on obtaining allodial deed, etc. Any success stories..please tell us.
Obviously, my personal belief is that property taxes are the worse of all taxes, since
regardless of what "net profit" or "income" you have, or you citizenship status, so
those property taxes keep going up and up,and have nothing whatsoever to do with your
"cash flow." HOPE TO GET SOME MORE POSTS ON THIS TOPIC.
WHat's youre experiences..let us know...I'll share my experience
when I have them..good or bad.
