APPEAL YOUR ASSESSED PROPERTY VALUE

 

Specific reasons why you believe assessor’s value does not reflect the true and fair market value.

The assessor does not appreciate the market value aspects of this property and the problems and negatives of the location of this property.

Before property in ? can be sold, radon tests must to be made; and if tests are positive, the construction of ventilation ducts must be done.

This 100+ year old house has only ? electric outlets, making it undesirable for today’s modern electrical appliances.

This 100+ year old house has tube and knob electrical wiring.  FHA (FEDERAL HOUSING ADMINISTRATION) will not finance property with tube and knob electrical wiring.  Eventually, houses with tube and knob electrical wiring will not be allowed to be sold.

This 100+ year old house has lead paint inside and out.  Eventually, houses with lead paint will not be allowed to be sold.

This 100+ year old house has lead water pipes.  Eventually, houses with lead water pipes will not be allowed to be sold.

This 100+ year old house has asbestos insulation.  Eventually, houses with asbestos insulation will not be allowed to be sold.

The sewer and storm drain pipes in this area are combined into one, making it an undesirable neighborhood.

This 100+ year old house does not have carpeted floors.

The sewer and storm drain pipes in this area are combined into one, making it an undesirable neighborhood.

or

This area does not have access to sewer pipes and system, making it an undesirable neighborhood.

This property is not appreciating, it is depreciating.

Because of demand and smaller down payments, homes in poorer neighborhoods sell more readily than homes in upscale neighborhoods; and assessor appraisals are higher than comparative value with these upscale homes.  Consequently, periodical assessor appraisals in poor neighborhoods increase at a higher percentage rate than homes in upscale neighborhoods, creating a graduated tax in reverse.

IF STATE AUDITORS, STATE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUES AND
STATE ATTORNEY GENERALS WOULD INVESTIGATE,
THEY WOULD FIND THAT:

The assessed property valuation of higher priced properties
is less than their purchase price.
The higher the purchase price of the property, the greater the disparity.
Higher priced property owners pay less than their fair share of taxes.
Lower priced property owners pay more than their fair share of taxes.
Lower priced property owners are being systematically over assessed.

Assessor personnel will harass you, attempt to intimidate you into letting them in to your home or business.  These harassment and intimidation acts are civil rights violations.  Do not allow them in.  You are not required to.

Property assessment is a sham.  It is like a novel that may incorporate

historical figures and events; but, never the less, is pure fiction.

Demand copies of all applications to county commissioners/supervisors submitted by all current members of the Board of Appeal(s)/Equalization/Review in/for the county and all attachments and/or exhibits to all such applications, with specific reference to the full names, backgrounds and qualifications of all such members.  Board of Appeal(s)/Equalization/Review members are political appointees, not civil service employees; and are not exempt from state public records disclosure acts.  Not to furnish this information is a violation of your state public records disclosure act, other state open public records laws and a civil rights violation.  When you get the information, challenge their qualifications.  But first, go to the assessor’s office and search the property records for property owned by the board members.  Are the assessed property valuations lower than what they should be?  Are the assessed property valuations lower than the purchase price?  How great is the disparity?

Take a portable recorder to the hearing.  Turn it on and set it out.  Transcribe as soon as possible.

SUBJECTIVE ASSESSED VALUATIONS

Property assessment using Current Value Assessment is nothing but a “location tax” that is punitive, volatile and malignant.  When assessor appraisers determine property values, persecution of some people is always the aftermath.

CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS

County assessor appraisers typically victimize senior citizens
and poorer neighborhoods, because they know that
these people cannot afford professional real-estate appraisers to appeal.

When assessor personnel discover that you do have an attorney,
it is standard procedure for them to telephone him/her,
knowing that your attorney will charge you for the time spent.

MARKET VALUE ASSESSMENTS

Only the market place can determine the value of property.  A uniform and equal rate of property assessment and taxation is essential.  Our property assessment system has been the source of controversy and litigation for decades because it is chronically un‑uniform and unequal.  When the United States Supreme Court reviews assessed property valuations, it will rule that states without a law limiting the amount of annual assessed property valuation increases until the property is either sold or major improvements made, cannot increase assessed property valuation until the property is either sold or major improvements made.  This reference is to California Proposition 13, passed in 1978, limiting the amount of annual assessed property valuation increases to 2% until the property is either sold or major improvements made.

It is the responsibility of State Legislatures to
pass laws that will protect citizens from these unconscionable,
over inflated property assessment valuations that are, in reality,
only a surrogate for increasing tax revenue.

Proper legislation would limit the amount of annual assessed property
valuation increases
to the amount of the annual Consumer Price Index (CPI)
until the property is either sold or major improvements made
.

Write to your representatives at the State Assembly/Legislature.
