“Let me tell you how it will be, There’s one for you, nineteen for me, ‘Cause I’m the Taxman, Yeah, I’m the Taxman.”–George Harrison

Who says Bridgeporters aren’t jonesing to pay their taxes?

The line formed out the Tax Collector’s Office door on Tuesday, the first day to collect taxes for the start of the July 1 budget year. Do ya think Mayor Bill Finch worked the tax line like he did the line of folks waiting more than two hours for a water taxi to Pleasure Beach? I can hear the mayor now, “Thank you for paying your taxes. Together we are making Bridgeport the cleanest, greenest, safest, most affordable city with schools and neighborhoods that improve every year. (Except for you Black Rock people who never pay enough!)”
