KCTV5: Jackson County expecting up to 40,000 property assessment appeals by today's extended deadline
Deets on the big day for the BOE:
Tuesday is the last day Jackson County homeowners and property owners can turn in a formal appeal to the county's Board of Equalization, the next step in the controversial saga that has seen thousands of local properties assessed at what owners say is an incredibly unreasonable rate . . . The county expects to receive 30-to-40,000 formal appeals by the time the deadline hits.
According, a brief Midday run-in inspired this quick quip and message to TKC . . .
"Even working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from now until October, we couldn't possibly review 30 to 40K property tax assessment appeals. It's a bad joke, this process is never going to work and sooner or later somebody is going to have to be the grown up and stop pushing this charade on the pubic. Nobody trusts Frank anymore and Legislature is just waiting to see what happens with his legal troubles. This is a disaster in the making and I feel sorry for the county residents who have been dragged into this debacle for fear of losing their homes."
