    they're basing the taxes on the assessed amount.. and they think this house is worth 315k .. 2 years ago it was.. its worth about 180k now.. this is crap...i'll be making some phone calls first thing Monday morning to get this crap straightened out.. hopefully anyways... gonna have to try and not yell, because i'm pretty pissed off about it at the moment and i'll probably still be pissed off until this gets fixed

    you just purchased that house. so everything on record at the courthouse should be up to date. so the appraisal value should be based off the sale price at this point. Hell if anything the market has tanked since then.

    call the assessor's office in the morning and have your house re-assessed.

    Our mill rate actually dropped this year.
    i'm saveing nearly 80/month over last year

    I'm with B. Assessed value is the last reason why your payment should go up at this point.

    It's how business is run now adays. Charge you extra, if you don't say anything, they make more money. If you do, "We can change it for next month, but you have to pay the full amount this month." Verizon tries to do it to my cell at least once a year. If their service wasn't so much better than any other in my area I would have switched a long time ago.

    I wasn't serious about the conspiracy thing. I have experienced this phenomenon. It happened to me when I had Nextel. My bill had been like $150 three months in a row until I figured it out. Then they talked me into a "better plan" securing my business for at least another two years...
