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.
Shouldn't really matter much. In NC when reassessing, the county must, by law, change the mil rate to make the reassessment revenue neutral. Any desired increase in revenue then must be treated as a separate tax increase.
