banana-quit-copy.jpg Our Senator at large has introduced a bill in the Virgin Islands Legislature to correct the valuations for property taxes done recently on St. John.  Not only is Senator Barshinger proposing a proper valuation based on criteria set by certified appraisers, he is also proposing that improvements on St. John be valued the same as on St. Thomas.  Currently St. Thomas inprovements are valued at $93 sq. ft. and St John improvements are valued at $360 sq. ft.

 Good job Senator Bashinger!! Let us hope the bill passes and our tax system can get back to normal.
