2 thoughts on “Taxpayers Gain Insight on Protesting Rising Property Taxes

  1. Elderly homeowners have no incentive to protest a rise in their home assessment. Why should they bother- their taxes are fixed, or nearly so. So just the opposite occurs- they applaud a steep rise in their home value. Say another elderly homeowner on their block also sees a sharp rise in their assessed value and also says “why bother”….now their highly assessed homes lift the norm for the block. Neighbors protesting their own rising assessments fighting a losing battle…”Your entire block is seeing a sharp rise, and so on”.
    What do you think?

  2. Sure, let’s blame it on someone least able to deal with it. You know, the elderly, awash in all that social security cash.
