Are Propane Firms In Connecticut Playing Fair On Taxes?

My is that the propane company is paying Personal Property Tax (PPT) and the homeowners are paying Real Property Tax on the same tanks. That's double taxation and wrong. If a propane company is charging you outright for a PPT reimbursement, and they haven't actually paid the tax, that's wrong. But if they've paid the PPT, you can't blame them for passing on it to the customer.  (Jan 28, 2009 | post #30)

Are Propane Firms In Connecticut Playing Fair On Taxes?

The practice of assessing personal property tax on propane tanks is double taxation. Here's why - Property assessors typically place the same value on: • properties with a propane heating system (where tanks are owned by a company) and • properties with an oil heating system (where tanks are owned by homeowner). Why is this the case? If propane tanks are taxed separately, propane homes should be assessed at a lower value than heating oil homes. If not, why not?  (Jan 27, 2009 | post #23)
