I Won!!!

It didn't actually change what I pay in taxes but at least I made my point...they lowered the value down to what we paid for the property instead of their inflated figure they had....whoooeee!!! So nice to be vindicated.

Why didn't it lower your taxes?

Because they use this other number that is actually much lower than the real market value to determine the taxes. If we had to pay taxes on the real market value it would be huge....instead we pay taxes on about half and it is the same number they used last year even when the real market value was higher.

Whoo Hoo! Sometimes you just have to speak up! With the Mortgage disasters that are going on, I think the EARS are a little more receptive these days! I feel really bad for all these people who are losing their homes.
