Well, I just picked up my mail that accumulated during the last 2+ weeks and within the bundle
are 2 letters from our government related to the latest tax grab from property owners.
Apparently they were serious in insisting on 'reverse billing' this potential tax. If the owner(s)
named don't respond and apply for an exception (which the government suggests 99% qualify for)
then they will charge the owners the tax. I can only assume that the government is hoping many
either neglect to make the deadline, don't receive the letter, or don't fully realize the consequences
of not responding. I think any and all 'reverse billing' should be illegal. I also think this is a totally shady
way to do business. Shame of them!

I was (and still am) under the impression that 'reverse billing' tactics were deemed illegal quite a while back. Is this not so?

Or are there special dispensations for the government?

Since when did any government follow their own rules?
They've obviously never heard of the saying, "what's good for the goose is good for the gander."
