What do you see as the potential pitfalls of the above scenario?
Until Clark-Buchholz came along, we mostly maxed the levy for years. There was one, just one, abatement, about 6-7 years ago. Nelson talked about it like she parted the Red Sea. Problem is my D 41 taxes went up so much the following year that it negated any benefit that I received the previous year.

Also, your theory asks for us to trust I people that want 'every last penny' for whatever they want to do with it. I am comfortable saying that Buttimer would never consider abating a penny, ever.
