Reassessment process flawed, taxpayers told
BY HEIDI RUCKNO
...Rodgers outlined what he saw were two fundamental flaws in the reassessment process. The employees hired by 21st Century Appraisals Inc., the company in charge, were not qualified, and that the assessments were from 2005, he said.
Rodgers advised anyone who was even thinking about appealing his assessment to spend the $5 to file for a formal appeal. The forms must be filed by the appropriate deadlines, because late appeals will not be heard. A formal appeal can be expensive, so Rodgers advised property owners to consider that. With an appraisal and an attorney, the average homeowner could easily spend about $800, he said....
....One man wanted to know if the group should file a class action lawsuit.
Rodgers said it would only take one case to overturn the entire reassessment process. If a judge ruled the appraisers were not qualified, or that the values were old, it would be null and void, he said.....
Oh boy here we go, ....eh whats another 8 million...
On a humorous note someone forgot to change the image on the Citizens Voice front page and its the one from yesterdays front page. It' fits very well though, maybe on purpose?
