But this doesn't address the OP's question.

The OP doesn't have a Q just a vague whine.

Where I live you must present comps, at least 3. What you purchased your house for is not a comp. You may have purchased your house under an unusual circumstance.

my point was what applies in Fairfax County doesn't apply throughout the US.

You'd need to let us know what exact county is in question, and perhaps there's someone that can answer your question. Or, you could contact the tax assessor in that county and they'd probably answer for you.

there always seem to be a few losers in the crowd, advocating tax robbery, as if it is a way to earn eternal life, or even a place in the feminazi hall of fame.

The OP wanted to know if he could use the purchase price instead of comps to protest his assessment. I told him that I know people who have done that successfully. In other words, yes, people have done it. Of course, much of this depends on where you live.

The question would get better answers in the NOVA forum.
