The world is not short when it comes to technological development; there is something new out there almost every week. I believe that this is a step in the right direction which we all need.

Tearing up the property tax form is no substitute for the failure of the PP government to either adjust or repeal the 2009 law which is about to be implemented by the Rowley administration.

Has the PNM government gone mad? I just read what the Attorney General and Finance Minister had to say concerning squatters having to pay property tax.
