A Republican-American investigation exposes the failure of the city of Waterbury to go after its top delinquent taxpayers who owe $6.4 million in real estate property taxes. The story reveals that "thanks to court action, environmental issues, and sale of liens, the cash-strapped city isn't likely to collect anytime soon." The analysis shows that of "the city's $27.3 million in delinquent taxes ... the top debtors owe 23 percent of the total." The author describes each of the top 10 debtor properties. The investigation is illustrated with a full list of real estate tax delinquencies as of March 22, 2001, as provided by the tax collector. The package includes also a question-and-answer section designed to help readers who find themselves on the list of delinquent taxpayers.
