Isn't this getting a little bit out of hand? We have the highest school district taxes in the state and now this? Beginning to wonder how people can afford to live here.

I'm brand-new here and still trying to get a feel for De Soto and Kansas in general so I don't know a lot about the taxes here. What are the school district taxes and have they gone up a lot recently? In what other areas do you have really high taxes?
