Returning money to taxpayers because the Town improperly assessed i.e. overcharged, is not a "cost to the Town since these funds were improperly taken from the taxpayers, hence the need to return their money. They should have also been given interest on the funds they returned not voluntarily, but because they were forced to do so. But wait until they get the bill for knowingly overcharging the Palisades Mall...it will be a doozy.
