Why shouldn't he bel alarmed - this so called assessment is just another reason to change the courthouse - From what I know the assessment was done by people with no formal training and what looks like a lot of shortcuts. I know of one area where the homes were built about the same time where the spread is almost 300,000. They did not know what they were doing or it's possible they sat somewhere and guessed at figures. Might be wrong. But if you start looking online you will see a pattern.
What is happening now is people are spending money to fight assessments done by people with no assessor license. I thought assessors in PA had to be licensed. Capital should be sued by all Luzerne County residences to recover money they are spending because of Capital's failure to proved valid numbers.
