Despite what some people say this really is an easy process to go thru and most homeowners can do it themselves without an attorney being involved.

I wonder what these people will think their property is worth when they want to sell?

The process is rigged. The longer time it takes for revision the less time is left until property valuations are updated.

Having those receiving the tax money decide the challenges to property values is nonsense.

Solution to the "backlog": Eliminate property taxes by eliminating government (socialist)
"education".

DON'T DO THAT. They will just raise taxes which will not go down when home value returns.

As a Christian, a Conservative and a Republican, I am opposed to property taxes. Taxes should be limited to sales taxes alone, and should only be enough to provide basic fire and police. Other services, such as education, should be paid for by the people who use them. Get rid of all those government employees.

There are no property owners. The American dream of homeownership is the greatest lie ever told. You can’t tax ownership any more than you can make the earth flat by religious decree. What one does when they claim to tax ownership is make ownership into that which it is not. Redefining ownership from that which gives you freedom from debt to that which puts you in eternal debt is ludicrous. Every rational person in the world understands this and that our so called “authorities” are incapable of seeing this makes them into members of yet another “flat earth society”. Property tax converts ownership into slavery.
If we are to believe that homesteaders are actually owners we would have to conclude that an owner is some one who has to make payment to someone else or lose possession of their property. This is absurd and a complete contradiction of what is ownership. Our government needs to quit lying to the people and just come out and admit they are unwilling to let the people own their homes

My hearing is next week.

It was filed over a year ago.

This is what you get, Ohio.

What a joke is this system of taxing the property owners to the point that they move out of the state of Ohio.

School districts should be ashamed of yourselves.

Just simply, disgusting.

As a Christian, a Conservative and a Republican, and an ignorant jackass...

Non jackass Americans expect a good deal more from their government than police and fire protection, you dumb whacko.

School districts will never be "ashamed of yourselves".

End the problem - let schools compete for the kids and parents - eliminate forced attendance and taxing for public (government) socialist schools.

Here in Ohio, doing as you say would just reduce property taxes. There are many things funded through property tax: parks, zoo, fire, developmental disabilities, etc. Do you think these are socialist things too?

Try not to use this hyperbole. That's a slap in the face to people who were actual slaves. Property tax is merely an inconvenience to you, not putting you into slavery.

As a landowner, almost 100 acres. If you do not pay your real estate taxes, you will see real quick who actually owns your land. The Government! My taxes keep going higher and higher. When will it end? Oh....by the way, in addition to the real estate taxes, I also have to pay 1% of my income to the school district. The last three years, I have earned less than the year before, but everything else is getting higher and higher. I can only hope we can survive.

"Do you think these are socialist things too?"

Yes - and we are seeing the results - debt to infinity.

Doing "good" with other peoples' money isn't charity - it's theft.

The current system is untenable.

Oh good, that clears up why I won't go to church...they do the same thing, doing good with other peoples' money. I always thought churches were crooked as hell. Thanks for clearing that up!!!

Try again... Church giving is admirable and it's VOLUNTARY. Government "giving" is force backed up by imprisonment or worse.

Churches, and the good people in them, once aided many in-need individuals much more caring and efficiently than "Big Al".

There shouldn't be a need to explain this but then again it goes back to government school propaganda disguised as "education".

Short version: Volunteerism good, force bad.

No. You are under no obligation to remain with your current lender. But it is a good idea to let them know what you're planning to do so they'll offer you their best rate. If you need quotes from other companies search "Mortgage Refinance 123" they found me the lowest refinance rate i could get.

Uh, wrong, try again. Church giving, in some churches, is mandatory if you want to remain a member. We were kicked out of a Methodist church years ago because we hadn't "tithed" for 3 years. Besides, your original statement made no distinction between "voluntary" or "forced" giving. So my response was correct.
Say what you mean and mean what you say.

Poor analogy... "We were kicked out of a Methodist church" - you weren't fined, imprisoned or lost your property for not "tithing". And you had a CHOICE of joining another church.

Repeat: voluntary/charity good, force bad.
