Property owners shouldn’t expect big valuation increase

February 12, 2007


Douglas County property owners will be seeing an average of less than a 3 percent increase in their valuations this year, County Appraiser Marion Johnson said this morning.

Johnson met with county commissioners to tell them valuation notices will be mailed Feb. 28. The state requires that notices be sent out by March 1.

The 3 percent increase is an average for both residential and commercial properties, Johnson said. He estimated that up to 4,000 residential properties will see values decrease.

That is great but I bet my real estate taxes still go up. The city, county, state and school district need more, more, more, more, more, more,more taxes.

Sometimes I wonder if those elected and unelected leaders are spoiled rotten kids at heart. Does Randy need a raise every year. Teachers want more money for less work. I wish the teachers and government employees were on an performanced based raise program but that will never happen.

Commuter, go kiss the south end of a north-bound horse. "Teachers want more money for less work," BULL. Your taxes go up because the State passes the buck to localities. Tax cutting frenzy has resulted in property owners paying what should be shared by everyone through income tax. Get a clue before you spout off your baloney.

let's see, the four mill increase in property tax to pay for the new library was based on the assumption that property values would increase by 5% per year. Looks like we are already behind the 8 ball on that one.
