My listers got 2 [somewhat circular
& confusing] memos from the Vt Housing Finance Agency which instruct the
listers to reduce the assessed value of an Assisted Living facility & a
Seniror Housing building by x.x%. Well, this means that all the other
taxpayers in town will have to make up the reduction etc etc.
I think such information should come
from PV&R and not various state agencies.
This is yet another tax hit for a town
wh. already has an Army Corps Dam, the union high school, a state park and so
on. We can be thankful that we are not Burlington, Montpelier &
Waterbury in this regard.
Where is there the teensiest bit of
equity in taxation under this system which 'equalizes' Grand Lists BUT fails to
acknowledge that some municipalities are becoming more and more burdened by
happening to be located where region-wide services are provided to people in
Good grief, we have no clue where this
fits into the education tax scheme. This buildings are new - people moved
in last December BUT they did not all come from Townshend. etc
PV&R can you validate
