Went to the Caldwell County GIS and looked at neighboring properties it appeared in my area it was split some higher some lower. I have no idea how they determine these values.

My property values increased 300%. They now have y property valed at $25000 per acre. I do not know who did this but there is no way that is a fair market value for land in this depressed time.

I do not see how they can raise our taxes in a time when so many people or out of work. Ours went up better that 10percent and we are not getting anything for it. Plus the fire and rescue is not added on to it in the letter. Most of the land value has come down and most houses are cheaper now than they were a few years back. I think we should get rid of the county commissioner and get some that have some sense and know how to live on a budget. Were is all the money that is being paid for all the tractor and trailers with trash going into our land field AT?
Mine too

Will the county purchase your property for the amount they have the tax value at?

I wish! LOL
I have a house in foreclosure I would gladly sale them for what they have it valued at. Value $104,000. I have it listed for $75,000 and still can't sale it.

Ours went up 100,000--how I have no idea.(Two houses in our development were foreclosed on and a house has been on the market for 5 years without a buyer--the price is 40% less than what it was originally listed at in 2008). Another house was on the market for 3 years and they ended up selling it 20K below assessed value.

We are challenging it. We have an assessor coming over this week to begin the process. We sent in the paperwork to notify the county.

Kinda funny how the "south" end of the county (the fastest growing section) didn't see an increase, but certain houses in Lenoir did.

Griffin continues to pull the puppet strings.

Have you heard the latest?
Ben sold the county home health but the company that bought it from the county is relocating the home health to Ben Griffin's brother Bart's old pool hall. Guess to get the contract they had to buy some Griffin real estate. One last big conflict of interest as he departed.

Probably went up because David Barlowe and Google for 1 scenario, and 2nd, Sheriff Jones and his numerous lawsuits for his constant screw UPS. When is this county going to say enough already and vote in a better Sheriff without constant scandals, embezzlements, Swingers clubs.....the list takes too long to type. You will never read about the crooked deputies in the NewsLESS Topic but if you. Google Raleigh or Asheville news, you will read ALL about this sorry county. Somebody's got to pay for all the deaths in the jail and lawsuits out the waaaazoooo, guess who pays? Not Jones and his big fat manboobs Capitano, but the innocent citizens who were conned by Jones. We won't be conned any longer. There is a decent, honest person running for a change. Praise God, prayers have been answered!!!! Vote Lance Wilson.

The current commissioners had nothing to do with this. this is a state thing that has to be done ever so many yrs.

Ben and his gang voted to put off the reval several years ago so it would happen --conveniently-- after his reelection (oops). With the delay, the increase is a larger chunk than it would have been if done on schedule, but now he doesn't take the blame.
