Dead French­woman hit with tax de­mand in her grave

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Com­bin­ing the old adage about death and taxes, French author­i­ties have sent a de­mand for prop­erty du­ties to a dead woman, ad­dressed to her grave in a small town in Brit­tany. The mayor of the sea­side town of Sarzeau said he had re­ceived a let­ter from the pub­lic fi­nance of­fices to a dead res­i­dent, ad­dressed to “grave 24, row E, ceme­tery road”, his sec­re­tary said. It was a de­mand for prop­erty taxes. He said it’s not the first time this sort of let­ter came from the pub­lic fi­nance cen­tre, adding it could have been a “joke from some­one do­ing the change of ad­dress”, or “one of the heirs who didn’t want to pay the prop­erty tax”.
