PostSubject: Sliding Glass Door Tax   Sun Aug 02, 2015 2:19 pm

Honey went to the other Home Depot and found out a little more.
Not exactly a tax, it's a permit the Pros have to get to put in a
sliding glass door.  Costs $175.00 for the permit.
Probably pay one of the guys that hang around there $25.00 to
stand in line and "pull" the permit.  So that's part of the
excessive charge to put one in.

She asked what would happen if we took it home and put it in
without the permit.  He said some people do that but if you get
caught you're in trouble.  The guys that do it for money can't
take a chance or they might lose their license.

Obviously not enforced any other way, we didn't pay one for
the one the illegal immigrants put in that we still have.
She was looking for a stove, our last oven heating element died.
I told her to go ahead and get a stove and door and have them
deliver it but she decided not to get anything again.

Sliding Glass door permit.. Sounds pretty nutty to me. Is that $175 a permit for the whole year or they charge that to each customer? We need another Boston Tea Party.

It's just a building permit with the description of the
work to be done - in this case sliding glass door
installation. You need one to do about any work on
your house. I forget how many days it's good for.
It's mostly enforced by licensed contrators.

I've said before, if you want to know who really owns
your real estate just quit paying taxes.
