I find it very odd that no one made a comment when I proposed the township perform a total property reassessment as a way to avoid property tax rate increases (when the total amount the School District requires from local property tax payers remains the same or decreases). The last few property tax rate increases are due to all of the successful property tax assessment appeals reducing the township's total property tax value.
I made that comment in response to an article about the Board of Education proposing a budget for the Executive County Superintendent to review that reduced the amount required from local property taxpayers, but raised the tax rate.
I admit I don't know how much a reassessment project would cost (that should be a factor in deciding whether it is feasible). However, I don't hear anyone, especially those who comment about not wanting tax rate increases, suggesting a reassessment.
What do you think?
