TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE PLAYING HARDBALL WITH HOMEOWNERS ON PROPERTY TAX APPEALS!!!
Amid outcry from neighborhoods throughout Kansas City -- Jackson County Exec Frank White via his Administration has responded by doubling down in defense of the recent property tax spike and setting up a confrontational system to address the crisis.
To wit . . .
COURTHOUSE INSIDERS REVEAL TEAM FRANK TOUTING A SMALL ARMY OF CERTIFIED ASSESSORS TO REBUT THE INFLUX OF PROPERTY TAX APPEALS!!!
It gets worse . . .
TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY, THE CERTIFIED ASSESSOR CONSULTANTS WILL BE PAID WITH THE VERY SAME TAXPAYER CASH THE COURTHOUSE IS PREYING UPON!!!
Not so long ago, when homeowners had a complaint they would inevitably take it to the Board of Equalization and work out a deal. Now, with thousands upon thousands of appeals already underway . . . Team Frank is doubling down this effort and assuring Courthouse colleagues that locals will be thwarted by this new team of consultants.
Courthouse Insiders realize this process is probably going to backfire quickly but for now it presents one more obstacle for homeowners who must already navigate a byzantine array of local government departments in order to save money on this unprecedented property tax spike.
Big picture #TBT reference from an Insider:
"In terms of politics, Frank White isn't going to be able to hang on to his ball player image any longer. He's now the guy who in charge of 200-300% property tax increases. THAT is what's going to stay with him for the rest of his career. There's simply to way to recover politically from this type of massive animosity from taxpayers."
And so . . .
Yet again we're at the outset of the demise of another Courthouse leader who was once beloved by voters but now confronts jeers and rebuke from former fans fighting to save their homes.
