What confuses me about this is that I hear everyone say that creating the dual tax rate in the first place was a big mistake, but can can not undo it now. I agree with that 110%. How does anyone think creating a triple rate system makes the dual tax rate situation better when we all know we should never have gotten rid of the single tax rate? Why stop at three lets keep going lets have a 4th tax rate for people who own property in the City, but who dont reside in the City? In fact I heard another person refer to this as rearranging seats on the Titanic. I could not agree more.
There are two things the City of Worcester needs to focus on:
- Cutting Expenses
- Creating more revenues
