Why is a federal tax needed? Why should a taxpayer in Illinois with a septic system in their yard pay for sewer upgrades in Omaha? Omaha has 13 years to complete the upgrade. Why don't they charge an extra monthly fee to each person's sewer bill? If the charges are divided monthly over 13 years, it will result in 156 payments. I'm sure the fee per person will not be overly-burdensome if it is spread out over 156 payments. Omaha is getting the benefit of the upgraded sewer system. Omaha residents should pay for it.
