Yesterday I found another tax assessment. Okay, that is to be expected, they do need to be paid every year.
But wait!!!! This assessment, only one year into what the assessors office reported to be a three year cycle (Ktn Daily News) is for a higher assessment than was corrected last year.
What the heck (edited for gentle readers) is going on? My house assessment has gone up another 25%. BASED ON WHAT THIS TIME?!
Three year cycle of assessments. If that is the case then I do not expect to have to be reassessed until, let's see...last year plus two is 2009, now add three for this current received assessment, that takes me to 2012 before I expect to receive a new assessment.
I agree with Mr McQueen, maybe the KGB should be examining its manning rosters and such-like.
This raise, on my assessment,
two years in a row, smacks of excessive power, and a disregard
for public input at the Assessors Office and by extension, a
failure of oversight and due process by the Borough Assembly.
