Got in mail last week, mine went up 48,200, my tax appraisal is now very close to bank appraisal. Go figure.

Our value was raised 25%, in a down economy, Go figure.
Price on home sales in our neighborhood were way down.
Someone has not been paying attention to Wall Street,or lay-offs, or employment.

I am no longer wondering how bad it will be. I got my new assessment and mine too is a 25% increase. My neighbor who is retired and on a fixed income got a 51% increase. This is insanity!!! I think it is so sad that people are losing their homes, and the government shows how little they care by this kind of outrageous tax increases. Has anyone ever tried the appeal process? Does it do any good, or is it just another big waste of time? I also like the fact that you have a 7 to 10 day window (depending on when you receive your mail) to contact them. If I could see one thing my property tax dollar was spent on, I don't think I would be nearly as upset. But the roads we have to travel to this 'Extremely Valuable' property are some of the worst in the county. I think we need a tea party at the Dandridge levy to protest - No taxation without... some damn thing to show for it!

This is what happens when you allow county officials to run without anyone contesting them.

before you get on here whining about County Officials doing the jobs you elected and are paying them to do, check your sources, the assessments are being raised from the last assessment in 05, this assessment increase does not mean a tax increase, its a little state law known as "truth in taxation", the property tax rate per $100 by law will be decreased to equal what you paid last year on the new assessment value unless your value was increased greater than the average. The county commission will have to vote on a tax increase dollar rate per $100 of assessed value if they want to increase the property tax, they cannot use the reappraisal as a means to increase taxes, hope this eases some of your frustration

I believe the Blogger was just asking not just whining. Know it all. As for me, I'm MAD AS HELL !
I did not elect any one to screw me over like this.
You ARE a politian by the way you TWIST words to try to make the crap your spewing sound like it smells good and I for one am tired of it. You should be in jail you are a crook.

"The assessments are being raised from the last assessment in 05, this assessment increase does not mean a tax increase"

THAT IS THE MOST IGNORANT STATEMENT I HAVE HEARD YET !!!

YES IT DOES, Mine and yours are going up you IDIOT. Geez do you work for the assessor or what ??? Little state law ??? Wow, you must be smart! My taxes went up 33% thats going to be over a 400 dollar lick mabye not all this year but by the 2nd year I will be paying a ton more. And then again every year until you take it up again in 5 years ! I guess the commission could drop the rate to zero and it would be o k. I guess I could win the lottery too, its much better odds. If they can't USE THE APPRAISAL SYSTEM to raise taxes then why the hell do we have an appraiser's office ?
YOU ARE A DAMNED IDIOT, same as the appraisers that just screwed us.
You are obviously one of them or you would never say something so stupid !!! It is a damn wonder someone hasn't shot you sneaking around their houses. Oh yeah, you do it during the day when taxpayers are out working to pay leaches like you.

Well, if thinking a very large increase in property values during one of the worst real estate value declines in history is whining, then I guess I am whining. If there is a little state law known as "truth in taxation", and property values have bottomed out since the 2005 assessment, wouldn't it be more "truthful" if the 2010 assessment went down to match the down market? You said, "…unless your value was increased greater than the average" What exactly is "average"? It is hard to believe that increases of $150,000.00 to $175,000.00 are 'average'. I have to agree with 'mad as hell' that your statement that the assessment isn't meant to raise our taxes is a stupid sounding statement. Of course it will raise our taxes for as long as we live here. Sure they may lower the tax rate for this year, and they sure as hell should at $2.29 per $100, but they will just raise them again next year on a higher assessment, so if you can explain away how that will not raise our taxes, I'm listening. And if you look at the tax rate of some of our surrounding counties, you will see that many are already a lot lower than $2.29 per $100. Since you know how it all works, maybe you can answer my question about what the high property taxes are being spent on then maybe you can "ease some of my frustration"....

Dandridge has already said that they are not going to lower their tax rate. todays Banner says the County Commish is going to raise the tax rate by 5% to 7%. so if I do the math, if it is only 5%, that is still more in taxes, because 5% percent of my previous assessment is a lot less than 5%of my current assessment. no need in trying to appeal to Mrs. Gass, she never is wrong, in her mind. line up for County board appointments!

I hate to hear that because my taxes on the current assessment will be a lot more too. If Mrs. Gass is as you say, then it sounds just like what we had the previous 32 years...

I'de like to have some of the horse sh-- Mrs. Gass is spredding for my garden.
There is no excuse for raising values in a down economy, if not to get additional monies.
Does she think we are stupid.

Why yes she does and why not, Bob did it for 32 years and trained her well . We have been conditioned and trained for it. We take it from the state and the county and the federal governments. And its time we said, NO MORE !! Unfortunately that is not going to happen with our vote. They have it so screwed up that we will fight ourselves before we can figure out how to fix anything. So I guess we should learn to like the taste of horse shit and enjoy paying taxes.

I wondered if I was the only one who thought it was a slap in the face to read they approved 63 million for the schools immediately after jacking our property taxes through the roof. Wasn't the wheel tax supposed to fund the schools? Where is all the money going???
