I have no children, never have had children, but I paid the school tax just the same.
I agree that once we get to this age, like so very many states do, Ga. should make Senior Citizens exempt from paying this tax.
Even states that do not have the lottery like Ga. does, give the exemption & most of these states have a far better school system than the state of Ga. does.
So, please, don't go saying we should have to pay this tax, we've paid more than most of the parents will ever pay!!!!
I was born in Ga. & lived here till I was 22 & then moved to Fl. I lived there till all my family either passed away or moved away & when I got to the point I needed help with everyday living, I moved back to my hometown to be close to the few family members I have left. I kick myself every day for being so very stupid!!!!
I honestly thought Ga. would be better about helping, I was sooooooooooo wrong & now I'm too sick & too broke to move back to Fl.!!!!
