MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont lawmakers have sent a wide-ranging tax bill to the governor calling for publicizing the names of the state’s biggest delinquent taxpayers and increasing the cigarette tax by 13 cents per pack from its current $2.62.

The 100 businesses and the 100 residents with the biggest tax delinquencies would be given a chance to pay up before having their names made public.

The measure also sets statewide school property tax rates, which are one part of a formula that for primary homes also reflects local spending and taxing decisions. The statewide portion of the tax will be 98 cents per $100 of value for a primary home and $1.51 and a half cents per hundred for non-residential properties.
