Comment It is a business. (Score 2) 223

It is a business... You were getting something for free. Now if you want it you have to pay $20 per YEAR. Not really a huge cost in my opinion. If you really need to use it you get a single address for free, or you pay for more. I havent had the need for it in years since comcast gives me the same ip for years at a time and when it changes I just login to gmail and go to the bottom and click "Details" and it shows me all the ips that I have logged in with and one of them is my home machine.

In Germany you do pay Property Taxes (Grundsteuer).... it doesnt matter if its federal blah blah... a tax is a tax.. and its looks much worse in germany than in the US actually.... Municipalities impose an annual tax on land/ property. The tax is levied on the assessed value of the property using the basic federal rate of 0.35%. The amount is further multiplied by municipal coefficients to calculate for the final tax due, which ranges from 280% to 810%. The effective rate is between 0.98% and 2.84% of the fiscal value but the average rate is 1.9%.
