To the Editor:
Headlines in the Providence Journal today proclaimed “Confusion reigns at city hall as taxpayers boil over bills.”
In 2011, my wife’s 2006 Ford Fusion was valued at $10,000 with $6,000 deducted for being a senior citizen and a $500 state deduction. This year, the car was valued at $2,000 after $6,000 was deducted for being a senior citizen and a $2,000 state deduction. In other words, the car did not decrease in value since last year.
The Journal article was right. I am really confused, but not as much as the tax assessor’s office.
