NEW DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR PETER SHUMLIN AND HIS  FRIENDS IN THE VERMONT STATE LEGISLATURE ARE OUT TO RAISE PROPERTY TAXES, SO WHERE IN VERMONT CAN A VERMONTER MOVE TO FOR LOWER PROPERTY TAX RATES?  WHICH TOWNS OR UNINCORPORATED TOWNS AND GORES HAVE THE LOWEST PROPERTY TAX RATES?  From: cris ericson usmjp@yahoo.com Sent: 1/16/2011 11:59:22 PM To: peter28moss@gmail.com [peter28moss@gmail.com] Subject: must move to Buel's Gore, VT or NorthEast Kingdom for Low Property Tax rates WHERE TO MOVE IF PROPERTY TAX RATES GO TOO HIGH IN CHESTER, VT I found a 2009 table on the internet and I must move to Buel's Gore, Vermont zip code 05487 near Camel's Hump Mountain, 5 ads for houses but none can be seen because the real estate agent went out of business. Tax rate in 2009 was 0.79 in Buel's Gore, compared to Chester, VT in 2009 was tax rate 1.79 Tax rates in 2009 for unincorporated towns along the St. Lawrence River in the North East Kingdom Lewis 0.05 Averys Gore 0.07 Wmrs. Grant 0.05 as compared to tax rate 1.79 in Chester, VT. I cannot find any info on Wmrs. Grant. Averys Gore had a population of zero in the 2000 census. There may be a handful of people in Lewis. Anyway, at least I have a plan now if my tax rates go too high!

Chris: this is worse than you think. The spokespersons Ann Cummings and Janet Ancel have been on VPR to promote this Trojan Tax Trick. Time to expose them and organize resistance.   3T = Trojan Tax Trick   The Vermont Legislature is "wrestling" with changes in Vermont's taxation. First, they assert that the change will be income neutral, meaning it will not generate more or less revenue than the state collects now. Nice try on folks that believe that things go better with coke, but when politicians hungry for more tax revenue make such a statement, you might as well go for  a good price on the Brooklyn Bridge. Second, they assert that they will lower the tax [rate]. The square brackets indicate that they hope most people will miss the word rate and think the everloving politicians who always preach smaller government are trying to save the taxpayer money. For the first year or two, there will be no dramatic tax increase but as inflation proceeds, it will sound  reasonable to raise the tax rate on the larger tax base now under "consideration." The Trojan Horse has become a symbol for monumental deception. Some 3200 years ago, the Greeks were seeking to gain entrance into heavily fortified Troy. The clever Greek Odysseus (some say with the aid of Athena) ordered a large wooden horse to be built. Its insides were to be hollow so that soldiers could hide within it. Once the statue had been built by the artist Epeius, a number of the Greek warriors, along with Odysseus, climbed inside. As a second trick, the rest of the Greek fleet sailed away, so as to deceive the Trojans. One Greek, Sinon, was left behind. When the Trojans came to marvel at the huge creation, Sinon pretended to be angry with the Greeks, stating that they had deserted him. He assured the Trojans that the wooden horse was safe and would bring luck to the Trojans. Only two people, Laocoon and Cassandra, spoke out against the horse, but they were ignored. The Trojans celebrated what they thought was their victory, and dragged the wooden horse into Troy. That night, after most of Troy was asleep or in a drunken stupor, Sinon let the Greek warriors out from the horse, and they slaughtered the Trojans. Priam was killed as he huddled by Zeus' altar and Cassandra was pulled from the statue of Athena and raped. Vermont's permanent professional career politicians remind one of the Trojan Horse. A carefully fabricated deception with horrible results but benefitting the incumbent tricksters.

A45:\taxtrick.wpd   ---   396 words   ---   Jan. 16, 2011 JANUARY 14, 2011 SHOCKING NEWS FROM THE STATE LEGISLATURE   http://www.leg.state.vt.us THE STATE OF VERMONT HAS A NEW PLAN TO GET RID OF LOW INCOME HOME OWNERS. CURRENTLY IN VERMONT, low income home owners pay property tax based on income.  If they have a low income their property tax is adjusted to make it affordable to live in Vermont. THE NEW PLAN proposed  in the Vermont State Legislature eliminates the property tax adjustment. THIS WILL FORCE LOW INCOME VERMONTERS TO SELL THEIR HOMES. The real estate agents are salivating. The State Representative who introduced this shocking and alarming bill is Robert W. Lewis 41 Bates Hill Rd. Derby, VT 05829 (802)766-8824 e-mail rlewis@leg.state.vt.us Vermont already has a low population of about 600,000 or so people in the entire state. This bill will force about half of the state to move. Then the happy real estate agents will sell the homes of the Vermonters who moved away to the rich people who live out-of-state and want to buy second homes for their vacations. The town of Ludlow, Vermont already has only 20% Vermonters living there, and 80% of the homes are owned by rich out-of-state people who use them for vacations.
