Opinion"I received the new tax assessment and I am perplexed"
web posted September 25, 2006
I received the new tax assessment and I am perplexed. The assessed property on which I live went up 25%. Then I read the article on your website about other assessments goin up 60-100%. This is unbelievable. I know on the ballot this upcoming election day is a referendum to limit the amount that assessments can increase. Is this new assessment trying to get a jump on this referendum passing?
Also, won't this be the last year that we pay property taxes for school funding? I know we have new legislation which will eliminate school funding from property taxes, but is this the last year (2006) that school funding will come from local property taxes.
I hope that everyone will request a conference objecting to your new assessments. I have and I am interested in the reason for such an increase. This needs to be scrutinized with a fine tooth comb.
