New weapon in tax collection arsenal

January 8, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Woonsocket has hopped on the bandwagon of a new and little known state law that has already enabled East Providence to collect millions in previously delinquent property taxes by intercepting state income tax refunds.
It’s called the Tax Refund Offset Program, and it works like this: If you’re running a sizeable enough delinquency with the city on real estate, motor vehicle or business equipment taxes, the state Department of Revenue will capture funds from your Rhode Island income tax return this year so they can be applied to the city debt.
