You've got to wonder how many of our Potsdam homeowners on fixed incomes will be able to remain in their homes. Expenses just keep going up, up, up, but incomes DO NOT. The day comes when people just can't pay anymore and have to leave their homes. What a sad state of affairs!

While I agree that assessments went up way more than the reported "average" of 13%, as usual some places are getting away with no increase- namely- Clarkson, Potsdam State and the CPHospital! THIS needs to be addressed. The presidents home is assessed for 4 million and they pay no tax on it-Cheel- 16 million- no taxes- and THIS is why our taxes are high- not just because of assessments.

The little man always takes the hardest hit. But who cares, right? Not our public officials. Never. When do they ever worry about the plight of us "commoners"?

I am norwood village resident and my tax assessment went from 45k to 99k in one year, that is a 54k raise in tax assessment in one year for 2013. I will have no choice but to let my house go for taxes in a year or two from now.My wife thew kids and muself will be on the street. my payment will be twice the amount of my mortgage. If I had this amount of money I sure would not be in Norwood. I wish mine only went up 13%.

My assessment went up over 25% while other similar properties were unchanged or went up little. There is no consistency to this 2013 assessment.

In 2008 a class action lawsuit was filed by 40 members of a NYS community(Trout Lake) and the assessments were thrown out.Why not do this in Potsdam?

These assessors just want to see what they can get away with. A lot of people are just plain dumb, and either don't pay attention, or just too lazy to pay a little visit to the newbie assessor.

I am "retired"; I love getting up in the morning and not having to go to work. "Loving it" doesn't mean I have a lot of money. I'm by no means financially well off in any sense of the word, except that I have much more time for my family these days. And that's what I mean by "retired_lovingit".
