    • Franklin, MA Fiscal Year 2010 Tax Information From the Board of Assessors for 12/2/09 Town Council Meeting And MA Gov DOR website Prepared by Steve Sherlock FranklinMAtters.blogspot.com/ This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License .
    • Residential vs. Commercial/Industrial Mix over the years 1988 – high point for Residential at 82.12%; 1993 - low point at 77.04%
    •  
    • 14.21% at 1997 8.86% at 2007
    • 14.21% at 1997 8.86% at 2007
    •  
    • To reduce the residential rate by $1, the commercial/industrial folks would see an increase of $4. A split tax will not do anything to resolve Franklin’s problems. A split tax will only shift a share of the pie from one group of taxpayers to another. Franklin needs to GROW the pie!
