New assessor continuing the over-valuing of property

-A +A
Placer County Assessor, Kristin Spears, continues to over-value our property in Placer County. All property in this county has declined in value dramatically, yet she continues to maintain artificially high assessments, a self-serving way of keeping higher tax revenue coming into the county. I have appealed the artificially high assessment placed on my property by her office and lost. Her office ruled on the appeal. That is like putting Dracula in charge of the blood bank. Now I am taking the appeal to the next step. I would suggest everyone do the same. It’s bad enough that our properties have lost value in this economy without having to pay artificially high taxes on them. James Shaw, Rocklin
