Why did it take 12 years?

No. All need to protest.

If you disagree with increased valuation your protests need to be filed prior to June 30 with the county clerk.

That is exactly the attitude the county is hoping for. Make it easy for them and it will probably raise again. Everyone that has a raise in valuation should protest at the county and state level. Just because it hasn't been done in 12 years is not a very good reason for tax raises. Some properties are actually worth less.

Valuation From taxation does not equal home value in terms of resale value.

And that is why there is a method to dispute the valuation that the appraiser came up with.

Profits of crops have nothing to do with the value of the land it's grown on so what does this have to do with taxes.

It doesn't, but some feel since the farmers have record profits they can afford the raises and should not protest.

Record prices of crop = high profits = idiots paying $10,000 per acre. Valuation goes up taxes go up. Only the govt wins.

$10,000 sounds low. Didn't some bring more than that?

Yes one farm went for 14,000 per acre east of Falls City. Of course that is more than poor people like me can afford.

When I was a kid in the 1960's most of the farmers in our neighborhood were poor including my dad. We didn't even have running water like several of our friends. As time went by they all sold out to the big rich farmers. In the 80's the wannebe rich farmers went broke and were sold out to the rich farmers.In the 90's there were still a few who worked in town and farmed on the side but they have now vanished. A poor farmer is a rare thing to see nowadays. The land around me rarely sells for less than $6000 per acre and most is over $8000 now. My neighbor sold 60 acres last year for over $250,000 and it has never and probably never will be farmed it's so bad.
