That's the total sum of back taxes owed to the town ( us ) for the year 2012. There's been a lot of chatter around town and here on the blog about getting businesses to come here and ad to the tax base. Well it may surprise you to know that quite a few of these delinquent taxpayers are businesses and others are town employees and board members. $600 hundred thousand this year, around $500 thousand last year and when December's bill comes out that total is only going to climb higher. While bringing business to Winchester is important, getting them to pay their fair share in taxes is more important. Our Selectmen seem to be very selective on whom they chase to recover back payments too, thus adding to the problem.
A list of all the people and businesses that owe back taxes can be found by doing a search on the Town of Winchester's web site using this link .. https://nhtaxkiosk.com/?KIOSKID=WINCHESTER.
It may surprise you to see which businesses shirk their responsibilities and add to our burden.
