We applied non-utilization tax in Woonsocket. You are correct that almost all will ultimately be abated.
It’s a tool to fix blight, not a revenue generator. That being said, we made a non-utilization roll in vision/opal and kept it separate from the certified levy.
I wouldn’t count any of that revenue in the budget due to my experience abating almost every one of them. All it takes is one rent reciept for one month and you need to abate.
