Below is an email we received from John Price this afternoon. He's seeking individuals who paid 2007 property tax rate who are seeking refunds. This is critical to the case that he recently filed on behalf of the taxpayers. Time is of the essence because he must respond to a Defense motion by 10/19/07. PLEASE ask around and see if you can find anyone who might be interested. With the next round of bills coming out soon, those who overpaid will need the surplus to help with their November bills, no doubt.
Mr. Price's phone number and email address is at the bottom of this message. Interested persons may contact him directly to seek further information to help them determine if they want to become involved in this suit.
Your assistance is very much needed and appreciated. If we do nothing, then we risk having the suit dismissed. Thank you in advance for your efforts to keep this going.
EMAIL FROM ATTORNEY JOHN PRICE:
Gentlemen and Ladies:
As you can see from the attached check from Marion County to John Skaggs, he received his overpaid tax refund within 14 days of our filing our Constitutional Tax Case, in which he was named as a taxpayer asking for a Class Action for all Marion County Taxpayers who want a refund. The refund form says it takes 6-8 weeks. IDLGF Commissioner Musgrave gave Marion County until February to pay refunds, the point of our request for an injunction. The ploy here is obvious, but we must respond to it.
When the County Defendants file their Motion to Dismiss, you can be sure that they will include a copy of the attached check and ask the Court to deny class certification, arguing that the only individual in the case who requested a refund has received it. Thus, I need several persons who have filed requests for refunds whom I can add as party Plaintiffs, in October as part of our Response to their Motion to Dismiss, which is due on 10/19. So we have a couple of weeks. Please have any persons who overpaid their taxes and want a refund to contact me in this regard. If we are unable to add any such persons, Count III (Refunds) is likely to be dismissed.
John R. Price, Attorney
