Letter: Childless taxpayers deserve a break

A reader wrote about "blubbering" seniors and their reluctance to pay high school taxes, forgetting about when their children used the school system ["School taxes are a community investment," Letters, June 20].

This letter failed to address the many seniors who also pay obscene school taxes but never had children. While I agree that everybody should pay his or her fair share, there should be some consideration to senior homeowners who did not use the schools. Prehaps a discount or, even better, how about a school sales tax instead of property tax? With that, everybody pays.
