Assessments Are Comin’, Assessments Are Comin

Alice Rankin: My total 2006 assessment is up $72,500 over last years. $47,110 for land and $25,450 for Dwellings. What I found interesting was that the amount that last year’s taxing districts charged was not included on the Assessment Notice, as it was last year. Only had the dates and phone numbers of the budget hearings. So we will be unable to easily compare how much they go up.

Frum Helen Back: I think I know where the devil lives. Today the property assessments were received. Mine went up $300,000. Do you think they planned on having us receive this news on 6-6-06?

DFO: Mebbe that’s what 6-6-06 is all about. Don’t go near your mailbox today. Or you might be frightened to death by your assessment notice. Any other horror stories before we storm Assessor Mike McDowell’s office at the Kootenai County Courthouse?
