Voters in 89 New Hampshire communities will be asked at town meetings this spring to support dumping the anti-tax pledge candidates take when running for office and urging them to do something about high property taxes.
A Concord group is organizing the effort to do away with “The Pledge” against a general state sales or personal income tax. The group wants voters to support a resolution that calls property taxes unjust and unfair and urges politicians to find a way to lower them.
Paul Henle, executive director of the Granite State Fair Tax Coalition, says people are having trouble paying their property taxes. He says the time has come to do something about it.
