Update on PILOTs

Fear not, dear readers!

Yes, there was a page in the budget document that added up to a paltry amount of Payments in Lieu of Taxes, but the there was another page that had all nine PILOTs and added up to $1,148,182.72 in revenues.

So, sorry for the false alarm.

More to follow on the 2010 budget.

Bernice, your vigilance is always appreciated. And while this is good news, it brings up the point of who is in this city that should be paying PILOT fees and who are not.

A cerebral palsey home is added to the list of non contributing companies who are living in Plainfield off the backs of the taxpayers. Another 12K off the tax books.

Would love to know what can be done to petition the state to make non profits pay something. Perhpaps the double dippers in the education system can give up one of their full paying jobs, the state can afford to pay taxes on these properties.

Several years ago the mayor of Morristown sent letters to all of the tax-exempt property owners in the city asking for a voluntary contribution to the town to help cover the costs of services they receive. Not sure what kind of response he got but not a bad idea to try.
