Tax Abatements for Pizza Parlors in Freeport, Illinois – Keep Shifting the Tax Burden to Homeowners and Existing Small Businesses!

 It was reported in The Journal Standard that Rosati’s pizza chain has requested a tax abatement if it builds a new pizza restaurant in Freeport in front of Menards. How can one justify any tax break for a pizza parlor. There is no shortage of pizza in Freeport. We already have many good restaurants that sell pizza. Another restaurant subsidized by the taxpayers of Freeport will just dilute the existing pool of business for established restaurants in Freeport. Tell Cannovas and Ciminos that they should subsidize their competition.
