In this 2004 vote, he voted to tax the recordation of oil and gas rights, and to tax business owners for the privilege of recording the fact that they leased property.
As if it is not enough expense to lease the property on which to put a billboard our other outdoor sign, but now the sign owner has to pay for the recording thereof.

HB465 – 2/27/04
Allows local treasurers who provide electronic access to public records to charge a fee to cover operational expenses.
As if your personal property taxes, sales taxes, countless other taxes and "fees",(known in the real world as taxes) and state income taxes are not enough to cover the essential functions of government, Bolling thinks you should pay a fee as well to make government user friendly.
Well, well......... looky here!
Bolling voted to tax your cell phone!!.......(below)
And if you own a business in Fairfax, look out; You are now being taxed for having a telecommunication system if you commited the sin of living in Herndon or Vienna, and Bolling voted to make it that way!
I was under the impression we already have too many personal property taxes levied upon us by big brother without adding more to punish us for using cell phones.
BTW, did you know that personal property taxes are unconstitutional?
But, then again, so was HB 3202, and that did not stop Bolling from supporting it either.
