To The Daily Sun,
Just received our Sanbornton tax bill due Dec. 16, and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the total tax rate had decreased by 38 cents. It seems that the school, state and county rates had decreased, but the municipal (town rate) remained unchanged.
The good news is, as per my calculation, if your property has a $200,000 assessed valuation you should see about a $76 reduction in your total tax bill.
So the question is if the other taxing authorities were able to reduce their tax rates why not the town of Sanbornton?
Something for our Budget Committee to examine in the future and perhaps to be discussed at the Town Meeting.
