I think the counties should adopt a tax system similar to NYC tax system(on average 5K from payroll and 5K for property tax) where they take a payroll tax and a much reduced property tax so that when one retires, he or she is only responsible for the property taxes that will not take the entire social security check to pay it. Besides, it would be fairer in that those who don't own property will also pay to school their children!
