I don't see why it couldn't be in care of the parents, particularly if there has been a power of attorney executed.† I don't think our listers would have any problem with that at all.† Another option would be to send a courtesy copy to the parents.

I am wondering how other towns handle life estates for the purpose of a mailing address on the grand list and tax bills.† We have been asked by a parent who has put his property in a life estate to mail the tax bill to him and not his daughter who apparently doesnít open mail from our town.† The listers are telling me they have to use the address for the daughter on the grand list and we canít use the parents mailing address.† I would expect the name stays in the life estate, but why couldnít the mailing address be in care of the parents?
