Show me your Truth in Taxation notice

It’s that time of the year.

Counties are sending out Truth in Taxation notices, indicating the proposed property taxes for the coming year. Each year I invite people to put some hard numbers to the usual debate on taxes.

Here’s mine. It’s about a 7 percent increase in taxes, which probably won’t go down much when it’s made official after next month’s taxation hearings:


As we’ve found in the past with this annual tradition, the percentage increase sounds worse than the actual increase. The nearly $200 increase for me works out to about $16 a month, and part of that, of course, will be written off on federal income taxes.

Let’s see yours.
