Supplemental tax lawsuit rejected

April 13, 2015

WOONSOCKET – The city dodged a potentially crippling financial bullet as a Superior Court judge ruled against a group of taxpayers who filed suit to quash the 2012 supplemental tax, claiming the $2.5 million levy was against the law.

Edmund Alves, legal counsel to the now-defunct Budget Commission, which ordered the tax, hailed Associate Superior Court Judge Netti Vogel’s ruling on Friday as a major victory for the city. If the plaintiffs had prevailed, Alves said the state would very likely have petitioned the city into receivership, much as it did in Central Falls over three years ago.

April 11, 2015
