Re: “Tax Haven

I just read the Robb Report depiction of *ONE*of the homes the owners of the track have. Holy cow- what a hardship they have! Having Multiple homes, difficulty arises having 35 boxes of accessories and artifacts for a luxury penthouse over looking Biscayne Bay How ever will we be able to blend our Deco items with contemporary paintings?!?
The rich owners have an interior decorator who thinks outside the box, certainly. The owners of TGP are thinking outside the box, too. Why pay taxes when you can pay a lobyiest? They certainly aren't thinking about the dogs who live inside a box 23 hours a day, eating raw diseased meat, and given steroids.
They aren't thinking about a couple of their employees who are paid so low, they are begging on 4th ave for money in their off hours. I'll bet they could find a better job elsewhere.They seem to only care about themselves. Maybe my tax dollars helped them keep that 1928 French Console..the one with the Miro painting above it...not so happy to have helped....

Re: “Tax Haven

Thank you Mr. Vanderpool for an excellent article that has needed to be written for some time. Other reporters have passed on this one, but you are unafraid to bring this issue to the public's attention. Our politicians need to know about this- they don't know or understand what's going on with this because it was done before they were in office! It's time to REPEAL this "hardship" tax credit- please contact your legislators

This will take you to a page with all the contact info for the people that represent you. Tell them you don't want to subsidize greyhound and horse racing with your tax dollars while your kids suffer budget cuts.
I personally will not eat at any establishments that have pari mutuel wagering. "NO" to Midtown Bar and Grill- "NO" to famous Sams- "NO" to Jeff's Pub where they are quoted as laughing when the dogs fall and hurt themselves and break a leg (in the caliente insert) I Think it's Un-American to not pay your fair share- but I don't want my money to go to dog racing!
