Plan to tax the exempt is on ice

December 28, 2012

WOONSOCKET – A plan to begin sending property tax bills to some organizations that have traditionally been exempt is apparently on ice after the Budget Commission split on the issue in a 2-2 tie Thursday.

Based on the split, Tax Assessor Christopher Celeste says it’s unclear what he should do and he’s going to need a formal legal opinion before he moves one way or the other.
