This isn't really a big shocker. Most people dislike the overly competent DC government taking money from them. I certainly do. Just like I hate the fact that we pay federal taxes without having a rep, or a senator. "Death and taxes", got it.
Our friends sent out an assessment on March 1, 07 on property tax assessments. I was more than a little shocked to see how much they had raised the assessed value of my property. However, I just got around to looking at the increases in values for my street. See here
How in the hell do they figure out all of these things, and how can the range be from 7% to over 3X that amount (23%)?
I had planned on appealing the decision, but April 2 was the deadline.... Oh well.
