Taxpayer - This is the fire service name for a small structure that has a business on the lower floor and a residence on the second floor. The residence may be presently used as an office, but it is still considered a "taxpayer" style of building. You will find these in older downtowns or neighborhoods. In some areas this might be the name given to any store with a residence connected but not necessarily two story.

This an old term that has been used in the fire service for over 100 years. These types of structures can cause for a variety of situations depending upon the type of commercial occupancy in the building.
