Barb,in reference to abatement of taxes,in 30 years I can think
of only one time that the board of abatement actually considered
abatement due to a person being unable to pay. The case was an elderly
person with many years of back taxes. The request was made by the family
to abate.We agreed not to sell the property until the estate was settled
and we did not abate the taxes.
We look at 24VSA sec 1535 and have abated taxes on (a)
(2),(4),and (5) I think we all could make a case under (3).
I also agree with Chuck Act 60 did make the school taxes an
obligation to the town if you abate taxes.
