Hello everyone.. Now I don't usually start threads but I thought this might be a good one given all the talk about raising taxes etc.

I got my Proposed Property Tax for 2010 - and in the lower right hand corner is a box that says "Percent of Charge" and in that box there is a number. My number is 120.1%. Now before we start this conversation I am not arguing the amount of actual tax because honestly it impressively low. My issue is with the percent of the increase.

I got mine yesterday also, but my percent was 6.3% on the house parcel and 23.3% on the 40 acre parcel. Still more than the cost of living increase. I guess the county wants to give all the Council a bonus.

The only thing I can think of is if you had any improvements either on your property or roads going by your house. I have had neither.
