My dam property taxes are $543 MORE than last year's.....I have NOT gotten anything to warrant such an increase, just more noise, traffic, aggravation and hassle around here.
What about the rest of you?

Mine is up by just $125.00 for the YEAR (so far). The latest assessed value went up on my property. As long as they keep reassessing and increasing the value, how can you ever each the "cap" everyone is talking about. Someone on the Chatter was talking about the county/city losing money due to the property caps. I don't see a cap and probably never will, just like lots of other property owners - is there really that much less money due to caps or is that just an assumption?

Remember that even if you reach the cap and the school system passes a referendum --- that your taxes can EXCEED the cap.  Vote NO for any referendum!

The $543 more is for the year, the difference between 2013 payable 2014 and 2014 payable 2015.

That's what I did. The whole thing is BS every year. Spend less and they wont be 'short' on funds. I realize it's a novel idea but hey, why not kick it out there.

Unless you don't own property, I'd be finding out why..... That could be a nasty situation in a few more years.

There are some area's in Clarksville that don't get charged. But if you own property in Jeffersonville it should definately be looked into.

Make sure its the statement and not the actual bill.

The county has been known to screw it up.

So long as there is inflation this will be the case. Trending will rise due to market forces. BUT the assessement should never be higher than what you can sell it for. If the assessment is higher than market value, contact me & I can help. I'm both a certified tax rep & a Realtor so I can help you make sense of it.

There are properties at the caps. It would most often be rentals and other parcels without exemptions that hit the caps.

Politicians love to blame the caps instead of their spending. I give such politicos the side eye, ESPECIALLY those that call themselves Republican. I figure eventually their spending will outpace inflation. when all properties are at the caps, watch for them to amp up the whining about repealing it instead of cutting.

You can appeal your property taxes! Most people are not aware of this!

I thought you could only appeal your assessment...can you also appeal your taxes?  If so, I'm in.

TEE HEE - I appealed my last assessment. They reduced it by a flat $5,000.00. Come the following spring, it got-reassessed and increased the value more than the $5,000.00. I never got to pay the reduced amount.
