The frying pan (pid) or the fire (lid)?
Property owners who will be impacted by any new subdivision paving taxes are asking “given that the PID is tax deductible and the LID isn’t, isn’t the PID a better option?” We do not believe the PID is a good option under any circumstances. And although we believe the LID is also an unacceptable option, if you are choosing between the PID and the LID click on the following link to see why we believe the fire (LID) is a better option that the frying pan (PID). The LID is a better option than the PID.
