I just got my first proposed tax bill for a lot in Northport from 40k value last year reduced to 36k this year. I called screaming that I have had that lot advertised on the market for 32k over a year with no bites and I demand a reassesment. I am in the process of getting it too.
In Palmbeach county I purchased a home in 1994 for 40k which the tax assesment was 42k. I demanded them to drop it to 40k because that was all that I paid for it and they did drop it. That year I built a 10 x 10 metal shed and painted the outside -thats all. The next year they assessed it a 47k. I called them screaming about since when is a metal shed and an exterior paint job worth 7k???? Would you pay me 7K to paint the outside of your 1500 sf house and build a shed that cost less than $300 from Scotties? They lowered it to 43k. You can WIN against city hall if you try. If you dont try, you will be hearded off like sheep letting the government get away with taking more of your not so availible hard earned money. Fortunately Im not hurting from this real estate mess, but I JUST CANT STAND TO KEEP HAVING MY INTELLIGENCE INSULTED BY GETTING A FIVE OR TEN PERCENT REDUCTION OF TAXES WHEN THE VALUE DROPPED OVER 50 PERCENT!!!!! What the hell are they doing with our money??? DO THEY THINK WE ARE ACTUALLY THAT STUPID???? Come on People, LETS STAND UP AND SET THEM STRAIGHT-I know that I will
