    Rhode Island Continues to Destroy the Middle Class Tax Slaves...

    Taxpayers file lawsuit to block Woonsocket tax

    WOONSOCKET – Several taxpayers are moving forward with their threatened class action lawsuit to block the city from fully imposing a supplemental tax on city residents.

    The gist of their claim, they say, is that the tax "is not in compliance with the legislation that originally authorized it."

    A lawsuit was filed Thursday, Aug. 15 in Rhode Island Superior Court by taxpayer advocate attorney Robert Senville.

    He notes in a statement that legislation approved by the General Assembly last spring authorized Woonsocket to issue a supplemental tax "contingent upon the city of Woonsocket's realization of a total amount of no less than $3.75 million in savings resulting from municipal enactment and concessions from collective bargaining agreements."

    He says the lawsuit points out that "at least $2.9 million of the projected savings being claimed by the Budget Commission can be or is currently the subject of a legal challenge and that, therefore, it appears that these potential savings, which certainly have not been realized at this early date, may be at risk of never being realized as required by the state law."
    Rhode Island, which has been controlled by the Democrats for over 80+ years, continues to screw the middle class tax slaves...don't you just love it...

    P.S....we have way too many "low information voters" in RI...

    P.P.S...the average teachers pension in RI is $38,000+ (which is about $18 hr for 40 hrs x 52 weeks) and free medical...don't you just love it...
