As for "average Democratic [constituent]" you might want to leave it as "average [constituent]".

I get taxed for owning property at a rate my state and local county have decided.
State / Federal Income Taxes
I get taxed on my income and I'm responsible for making sure my employees have the appropriate taxes taken out of their income.
