16 CUMBERLAND OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION chases were assessed, the company was no longer operating the quarry, but had a small amount of very old equipment it had retained, accord- ing to Kelly. "Our client is willing to pay taxes on that equipment, which is worth, at most, $100,000, and the real estate taxes on the real estate," he wrote in his letter. "However, we believe it is absolutely illegal for the town, through its tax assessor, to tax equipment on an expected purchase basis. Our client did not purchase any equipment of any kind after it sold its interest in the quarry in 2012." He called the expected equipment purchases a "figment of the imagination of the tax assessor." Kelly said the assessment is ille- gal, as the assessor can only tax fair market value on a property. He described the scenario of the town charging the full amount of taxes an "absolute travesty."
