  • Town owes county $148,000

        Sonia Jammes, Bedford’s director of finance, had some strange news for Town Council last week. It seems that the Town received $148,000 in vehicle rental tax that was supposed to go to Bedford County.
        According to Jammes, the state department of taxation collects vehicle rental tax and divvies up the local share of the tax to localities depending on where the rental agency is located. The state depends on the agency to select the correct locality when it reports. This is where the problem comes in.
