Legacy Park Addition

I've been looking at the tax values in Legacy Park Addition. Smaller homes have higher taxes than the larger homes. The same can go for tax valuations on downtown businesses. Some are really low compared to others that are taxed to their full value. Why is the tax office not standardizing values? Is it politics at the tax office? Why is it that many of the seemingly well to do people in town have multiple properties that are not worth much on the tax rolls while others are paying through the nose? I've compared square footage, location, etc. and the math does not add up equally.

I looked today and the person that built the addition has a larger home with less in taxes than some smaller homes there. I believe he has had some additions to his home that are not included on the current tax rolls. Our tax office needs to get on the ball. I'm paying more than my fair share compared to a number of people in town.

Isnt this the truth, well as I have looked through Pittsburgs tax rolls I have noticed that many of the so called well to do owe a couple of years in back taxes and their tax statements are accumulating penalties, interest, attorney fees, but they are making no effort to pay. How long does the tax office wait before putting liens on these properties and taxing them away from these people? Some of the people that owe big tax amounts own big homes and some businesses. Why is the tax office doing nothing? I called and they said they turn it over to an attorney and he handles the matter. Well, one business owner owes on their home, business, etc., since 2007 and owes over $12,000. Why are we having to pay taxes so people like this can skate by until they go bankrupt? The tax office should be seizing these properties TODAY!

I called the attorneys in Tyler that handle the past due cases and am waiting for an answer as to why taxes have gone unpaid for so long for so many people. I have to pay mine on time, so everyone else should also. Fines and attorney fees are fine for late payments, but come on people, people have not paid from 2007? This is a joke. Where is the justice to us in this?
