Property Taxes Soar in Boise, McCall Areas

You think your property assessment just went up?
Check out these numbers on Valley County land:

• Around Smith's Ferry and Round Valley: Assessments just rose about 65 percent.

• West side of Cascade Lake, not including Tamarack Resort: Up 70 percent.

• Donnelly west to Royal Scot: Up about 80 percent.

And get ready for this one:

• McCall: Up about 135 percent — and that doesn't include any lakefront property.

Prime lakefront went up from $13,442 per foot to $23,000 per foot.

"That's it in a nutshell," Valley County Assessor Karen Campbell said. "Please be kind."
