In the Kingdom of Mecklenburg County in one of the more desirable locaitons in the Queen City our rates suck. Worse than the rates was the new apraisal of home values for this year. The tax collecter decided my house, no changes, is now worth 71% more than it was in 2004. I know others that got it worse than that if you can believe it. If the tax collector had a check for the amount they stated everyone's home was now worth, everyone I know would have taken the check and laughed all the way to the bank. Maybe that office hasn't gotten wind of the rumors going around about the housing market. It's unbelievable to think they are trying to justiy this.
