Description

City Assessor Bill O'Brien sent me a letter yesterday, saying that my car's in New Haven a lot, and I may or may not be guilty of tax fraud. I live on Orange St. I paid City taxes on my car to get a residents' permit in January 2009. The City Assessor's receptionist said, "We didn't check our list of folks who've paid taxes before we sent out that letter. We simply sent them out to every vehicle with out-of-state plates that is on record. You're going to have to send us a copy of your tax payment receipt and permit receipt, or you'll be fined." New Haven, it's 2009! You can't penalize your citizens because you can't keep your records straight!
