It’s no secret the appraisal process for the Bay County Property Appraisers office is flawed. On the radio this morning I heard a caller into the Burnie Thompson Show on Talk Radio 101 that said that his assessed value from the Bay County Property Appraisers office was more than $200,000, yet his appraisal that just came back on a refi came in at less than $100,000. He couldn’t understand where the difference was coming from.
I, fortunately, do not have first hand experience with this, but have heard the stories like everyone else. The action of “rejecting” the tax rolls by the Bay County Commission is goaled at challenging the state to ultimately lower property taxes.
Lee Sullilvan was on the show this morning promoting is organization BayTaxPayers.org. BayTaxPayers.org has the goal of “advocate for fairness in taxes and accountability in local government.” They’ve been around since 2006 and have over 5000 members.Print Story
