I walked to the end of the neighbor’s driveway and said, “Excuse me, can I ask you a question about the house next store?”
He said, “An elderly lady lives there, I never see her, I don’t know anything about her, and it’s been reported.”
I said, “Reported, what does that mean?” He replied, “It’s been reported to the township.” I said, “Really!” I then said, “What happens when a house is reported?” He replied, “The taxes go up.”
I left not believing a word he said.
The next day I called the township. I asked if the property taxes go up on a house that has been reported. The response: “Absolutely not!”
