Durham’s Hidden Tax Breaks

Record #:
THE INDEPENDENT’s three-month investigation in Durham County found evidence of a widespread pattern of residential property tax breaks that benefit thousands of affluent homeowners at the expense of other taxpayers. Until now, tax inequities created during Durham’s 1985 revaluation of county properties remained undiscovered. There is no evidence that the tax breaks were the result of favoritism.
