RIPEC: Municipal property tax system ‘out of balance,’ needs reform
PROVIDENCE – A homeowner in West Warwick pays $5,400 more in annual property taxes for the exact same house than if they lived in Little Compton. If you own a business, your property tax bill ranges even more drastically – up to $35,000 more if you live in Central Falls rather than Little Compton. And…
So the folks running Little Compton know what they are doing, while the folks running West Warwick and Central Falls don’t. What else is new?
The smart moves would be for West Warwick to merge into Warwick and for Central Falls to merge into Pawtucket.
