City informs me it has approved my application for cancellation of the property tax increase, which is nice. But this is a yearly thing, approved long after the taxes are paid, and thus comes in the form of a rebate. I suspect that every year I must pay the new increased tax and then apply to get my money back. Will be pleased if that's not so, but suspect that it is and must be. Meanwhile my application for a flat cancellation, to which I'm quite entitled, was refused on the grounds that the increase was approved.
And I'm having a tooth out Thursday morning and not looking forward to it at all.
