The Winchester Commissioner of the Revenue and Treasurer will hold public input sessions regarding potential options for billing vehicular personal property tax (“car tax”) on the following dates:
Tuesday, March 20: 6:00 pm, Council Chambers, City Hall
Wednesday, March 28: 6:00 pm, Council Chambers, City Hall
The purpose of these sessions, led by Commissioner of the Revenue Ann Burkholder and Treasurer Jeff Barbour, is to provide information to our citizens regarding possible options for transitioning from the City’s unique twelve-month billing cycles to standard billing cycles in preparation for new technology.
This change is necessary as the City’s custom software has reached the end of its useful lifetime. New commercial software will meet the City’s needs and our citizens’ requests for the future. The sessions will include:
Background on the City’s current billing cycles, adopted by City Council in 1993 Comparison with standard billing cycles across the state Options for transition to minimize confusion and financial hardship on our taxpayers Benefits and desired options with new technology The Commissioner and Treasurer invite our citizens to take an active role in the process in order to provide valuable feedback to the City Council.
