Shifting the tax burden between property classes topic of discussion

Tax policy buffs and others are invited to Victoria City Hall for a presentation Tuesday (March 27) entitled Distribution of Property Taxes Among Tax Classes.

Peter Adams, of the Victoria Consulting Network, has completed a review of Victoria’s property tax policies and will present information of interest to city residents, property owners, and business owners.

The presentation explores ways for local governments to shift the burden of property taxes between the various classes of property. His presentation outlines his conclusions specific to Victoria.
