Fix Our Retiree School Tax Exemption Problem! Hopefully the new Marietta City Council will rein in theretiree school tax exemption. Because of the exemption, we are filling in all these new homes with nothing but retirees. School tax exemption should be based on number of years of residency in the city limits (or at least Cobb County) rather than the age of the people retiring down here from up north and keeping all their "up north" earnings in their bank accounts. After you lived here at least 50 years (total, no need to be consecutive), THEN you don't pay school taxes anymore. NO MORE EXEMPTION FOR "YOU MOVED HERE LAST WEEK BUT ARE OLD"!
