Family to lose home over $50 tax bill

BRIDGEPORT -- Ever since he came to this country from Haiti, Jean Castro just wanted to live the American dream.

He worked as a mechanic in Stamford before finally saving enough money to buy a house here for himself, his wife and three children.

Now, three years later, the city is foreclosing on the single-family home on Harral Avenue because Castro owes $51.69 in back taxes.

more on this sorry saga

The comment section of the Post article has several references to wealthy condo owners and corporations who are behind on their taxes. Will they be foreclosed on as well? I don't wish foreclosure on anyone, but the city needs to apply the rule uniformly and either lay off of this guy or go after everybody.
