WHEREAS property assessments have risen astronomically in recent years for owners of small resorts;
AND WHEREAS the recent economic downturn has further reduced an already seasonal business operation for owners of small resorts, creating an imbalance between property taxes due and income received;
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the North Central Local Government Association and UBCM lobby the Surveyor of Taxes to provide interim tax relief for small resort owners; wherein resorts would be taxed proportionally to the time they are in operation ( 6 months per year max) or 50% of the current tax.
The UBCM membership has not previously considered a resolution requesting that interim tax relief be provided to small resort owners.
