Last month I received a notice that most of you probably got as well. This notice was from the county assessor, the people who set our property taxes.
They were contacting me to inform me my property taxes were going up 10% (ouch!) It seems they reduced the assessed value during the crash, but now that market is back with increased values the assessor is revaluing our property. Make sure you take a close look at this notice, it is not just the yearly statement and you don't want a surprise when your mortgage or tax bill comes.
