TPRTA Warns Against Adoption of the RTE – Cape Cod Times

The Cape Cod Times reported today on TPRTA’s efforts to persuade Truro officials not to adopt a a Residential Tax Exemption that would reduce qualified full-time residents taxes while shifting the total savings onto part-time residents.  TPRTA advocates for the interests of part-time residents in Truro, who represent 76% of the residential property owners in Truro and a bit more than that in collected taxes and fees to operate Town government.   More than 98 percent of part-time residents oppose the RTE as unjust, unnecessary, and unjustified given the amount of taxes and fees they already cover in the Town.   TPRTA has also offered constructive alternatives to meet needs of residents for tax relief using exemptions not presently used by the Town and other measures.
