Which of the following must also be true?

A) Mr. Loren pays no local property tax in Rayleigh Harbor (though
he may pay such taxes elsewhere).

B) Mr. Loren pays no local property taxes anywhere.

C) If Mr. Loren is over 70 years of age, he pays no local property
taxes anywhere.

D) If Mr. Loren is over 70 years of age, he pays no local property
taxes in Rayleigh Harbor but perhaps he does elsewhere).

I believe the answer should be D
You pay local property taxes whether or not you live in that place, as long as you own a property. Local property taxes are paid on the property.
So D correctly states that if he is above 70 he wont pay local property taxes but might pay somewhere else because he may own another property over there


The question clearly states ...

The only way he can avoid paying tax in Rayleigh Harbor is if were to be a resident there.
But we also know that if he were to be a resident there then automatically he would be exempted from paying taxes anywhere else. So D does not hold true.

C is also incorrect because he may be over 70 but MAY NOT BE a resident. Owning a property is not necessarily same as being a resident there.

E seems to be the best choice here.[/b]

E?

None of the answers mentions that Mr. Loren is a resident of the small town mentioned.

Also, what does "they" refer to in the last sentence - homes or residents? I guess that might not matter here.

I agree, E, doesn't say where he lives.

Can't be C, cuz he could live in NYC and pay a ton of taxes.

Right, it does not say he is a resident of Rayleigh Harbor :?
