Property Value Drops, Tax Bill Goes Up, What Gives?



What on earth is going on? I got a county tax appraisal that showed my property value was down 30 percent. Then I got a county tax bill that was off the chart. It went from $3,800 and change to $4,519.54. Yikes.

This is crazy! And you approved this? Shame, shame. The county is ripping us because they can. You see, the county can set any fee they darn well please. Our defense? You. I feel betrayed. We at least deserve a valid explanation.

We deserve not only an explanation, but also a tax rollback of 30%! People... stop voting for tax increases. We don't need tax overrides, and the increase in sales tax which we voted for. We don't want higher taxes period!

I'm proud to have been part of a minority --- the vocal group of people here that were adamant in their opposition to the emotional pleas of those clamoring for tax overrides.

Time has proven that our opposition was valid.

Imagine if we didn't get a 30% value rollback. Now one can think of what is expected when values go back up as the county government has a new per $100 value tax rate. . Prepare! Vote lower taxes and those that increase them out of office as they are pushing us into the poor house.
