More fun with reassessment

A $7.2 million contract followed by a $850,000 extension and 21st Century Appraisals Inc. is in line for more. The Bond Brothers don't want them to include a statement called a tax-impact estimate to help property owners figure out if reassessment will cause their taxes to go up or down. The result will be more appeals than anticipated. But Commissioner Todd Vonderheid had this brilliant statement about the process, "It’s about whether property is assessed correctly, We have been trying to communicate that. People believe it’s about taxes.” Of course it's about taxes Todd. People want to know how much they will have to pay at the end of this yellow brick road if we ever reach it.
