John Oliver takes on special tax districts like Reston's Special Tax District #5

"If you think about it, it's a little weird in a country that talks so much about government accountability that a huge amount of our tax dollars go to fund entities that most of us know absolutely nothing about. .  . Think of a special district like a cult.  It can take your money and you may not even be aware that you are in one."

So sit down, relax, and enjoy this 15-minute John Oliver video on special tax districts, but catch his points even if we don't have most of these problems.   

. . . and for those of you who don't know what Special Tax District #5 is, it is the Reston-only tax district that finances the activities of the Reston Community Center.
