They just raised the property taxes here and then reappraised the properties. Stuck it to everyone twice. I bought my house one year ago and this year the tax man valued it at 26% more than I paid for it. Now I know I got a good deal, but that's just a little high. I called and said I wanted to appeal. I told the guy that if he though it was worth that, then he could buy it at his price and I would even throw in the furniture and everything else in it. I gave him a list of some comparable properties that I looked up in a real estate book that are currently for sale at far less than my apprasial and he said he would do some checking. He called back today and said he might have been just a little high on his appraisal, He lowered it by $20,000.00. I guess it paid to raise a little hell. Now in today's paper, they are talking about raising property taxes again.
