WBJ: A Tax Break For Capital City Diner?
The Washington Business Journal reports that Harry Thomas has introduced a bill to exempt the Capital City Diner from property taxes through January 1, 2016. The Capital City Diner is Trinidad's only sit-down restaurant (well, that pizza delivery place on Florida recently got two small tables), and Thomas wants to ensure that the Diner succeeds. Thomas introduced a similar bill (that one exempted them from sales tax, as well as property taxes, for a period of three years), but it died in committee.
