How can this be? El Paso has a very high cost of living as it is due in part to the exorbitantly high taxes. That being said; where does all that money go? One solution: Don't let people from Mexico who come here to shop, get their taxes back at places like Melek. Yes. That's what happens. Suppose someone spends $500.00 shopping. They go to Melek and get their 40 or so dollars back in taxes. They shop tax free! Tax 'em like the rest of us slaves and maybe these senior citizens could still eat!
