Well Folks I just received my 2008 tax bill for 2 different parcels that I own in the Wittmann area and about crapped down both legs, I think our little secret has been found out, my taxes have doubled on the 2 parcels in just one year now how do you justify that, something wrong with this picture? or is the county trying to over pad there checkbook? any comments????

How did your property values compare to previous years? And please, not necessary to crap down both legs.....it's cantaloupe season and it smells bad enough :)

House was assessed in 2008 at 119,00after the accessor visited. In June I received notification that the new assessed value do to office evulation error was 324,000 for 2009. Yet housing realestate wants to tell me the home is worth 185,000 with the crunch.

It's my understanding that the homes were evaluated for this tax season based on the ridiculously overstated value of your homes and property during that Goddamn boom madness. The next tax season your homes and property will be evaluated at their true value, which is what they are worth today, which means a large decrease in property taxes next year but also means a huge decrease in your properties value, per se, inflated value during boom =$324,000 actual value today =$119,000 Holy shit Hoss, that's a loss of $ 205,000 fucking dollars! oh well just pay your taxes and have a nice day.

It's not a LOSS unless you are selling. Otherwise don't worry about it, values will go up again.

Taxes going thru roof and Aguila residents getting nothing for it but another tax bill! From folks here I've talked to their property assessments went up this year 25-40%! and bulk of taxes going to school for children of illegals!(90+% in Aguila) While the Aguila Volunteer Fire Department gets only pennies of it.
I agree with you, this is the respect we residents get out here from politicians and Maricopa County government. Just a small town, small voter base, on outskirts of Maricopa County. Who cares? They don't care about anything except getting their taxes!
Talk going around town here is to put property taxes in an individual escrow account with Maricopa Treasurers name and property owners name and sending account number attached to tax bill. Funds cannot be released until both agree and sign off. This has worked in other states. Taxes are 'paid', money is in secure bank account, just disputed and see if that gets their attention. I think this is a heck of an idea and could turn into a legal protest movement.
