  • Bussie, Victor Interviewee


Interview with Victor Bussie about a court case regarding property tax assessment. He states that he would be surprised if the case is won in state courts, as he's convinced that it will take federal court action to correct the situation. He says that he is prepared to go to US Supreme Court if necessary, and he estimates that it will take at least 5 more years before a decision is reached. He states that the judge's decision that the choice of assessing property at cash value is discretionary and left up to assessor is in error. Bussie says that the law states that the tax commission shall list property at actual cash value.
