No good deed goes unpunished

Yesterday I may well have made a very serious error in my renovation project. I let the city inside my house to see it.

If I had lied to the city about where I was living on January 1, 2016 I could have gotten a tax abatement. But I didn’t feel comfortable lying. So I let them look inside to do a proper assessment of the quality and size of the building. Which means I’m going to pay more in taxes until 2018.
