Income taxes are collected where you earn it by your employer, no chance to be a deadbeat there - you earn, you're taxed. Sales tax is collected at the point of sale, you have the money to buy the product you need 6% or 7% more to complete the transaction. Again, no chance to become a deadbeat. That is because both of these taxes are based on the prior requisite of already having the money. That is key.
Owning property only means that at one time somebody saved and had the earning potential to buy a house. And there was a tax at the point of sale that had to be paid to complete the transaction legally. After that why is there an assumption that the owner will earn an increasingly higher wage to pay for an ever increasing tax rate? When people get older they tend to work less overtime, change jobs, and eventually retire.
The property tax is a holdover from the Middle Ages. Then owning property almost always meant you were making money from it through agriculture. The land owner was then obligated to pay a share to the King in return for the security of living in the Kingdom. This is an abridged and simplified version of course. But the key point is, land owners were making money off their land. This remained true for most land owners for some time after the end of serfdom and before the industrial age. But we are no longer an agriculturally based society and yet taking tax from the land owners remains. In fact upkeep of homes, houses, and property in general is a significant drain and not a source of wealth.
So the property tax is actually the most regressive tax there is, taking more while you could be earning less. Why do we still have it?
