Amherst residents get clear view of their taxes
I am not sure what the tax bill in Lancaster looks like, but the Town of Amherst bill is crystal clear. Every component is listed: library, county, town, highway, fire department, garbage, two sewer taxes, three drain taxes, central alarm and LD 2003 Merger. This bill also shows that for Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, the county tax was increased 5 percent, while the town tax was reduced 1.6 percent.
I am not sure who generates the writer’s bill, but if it comes from Lancaster, that town needs to do a better job in issuing it. Should it come from the county, I don’t know why it would not be a uniform format.
