I have always been troubled how a state could do something the
union government is not allowed to do, but magically you are able to
go to the US Supreme Court to seek redress of grievance for such
unlawful state acts.
EXAMPLE: Congress cannot disarm the people of the several states,
but he states can disarm their citizens!
Congress cannot apply a DIRECT TAX unless apportioned,
but he states can.

A State property tax does not need to be apportioned & the rules of apportionment / uniformity in the U.S. Constitution applicable to Congress do not bind the State legislatures. Â
