Please write your Senator, to help the home owner, make it easier to lower their assessments
So, are you looking for us to change the law to make it easier in the future to lower the assessment? How would you propose changing the process?
The next session doesn't begin until January, so we won't be able to do much until then.
I will talk with Sen. Vukmir to see if she is interested.
Sen. Vukmir's Office
I'll be in touch.
Make a law, where they (have to except the sale price) , of a property , as true value, at the board of review , which is the second step, a homeowner has to take, to get it changed and lower that assessment to that value, as long as, it was a legal sale,sold on the open market , so anyone could bid on the home.
That shows you the true value of that property.
It is not somebody's opinion, of what it might sell for or it's worth , but is, the real price.
Right now, I am being charged, for an assessment , that I can not even sell my place for.
Here is what it is today
Right now, we have to go to three places and it is still rejected and it cost me money, to do, what I did.
Or at least have the right forms to fill out at the court house so we do not need a lawyer and spend more money on that.
What the city is doing is fixing prices so you can not lower that assessment. AND THEY KNOW IT
When prices were going up , the city just raised your assessment by saying ,look at what your neighbor, just sold their house for ,so you must be worth that much also.
Now , that prices are still going down ,they do not want to lower them to market price.
It is not fair , to the home owner, to jump though all these hoops and still get no results.
It is all one sided.
