Assessments Are Posted...Zimmy's Home Under Assessed Again

Hey, Yupette,

Real estate assessments for 2011 were posted today (Sorry, Scotty, Yupette scooped ya again). What is my tiny 1500 sq foot condo assessed for - $420,000. What is Chairman Zimmerman's nice big single family home in Douglas Park assessed for - $516,800. Zimmy does it yet again. Hey, also looks like the Assessor screwed up and raised Barbara Favola's home assessment. How did that happen?

The sun, moon, stars, and planets happened to align on the day Zimmerman's neighborhood was being re-assessed. So the Assessors Office had to use last year's data again.

Yup. Bab's must have taken one for the team, because all of the other CB members watched their assesments stay the same or go down.

Barbara was too busy working on deals to get big taxpayer-funded gifts for Marymount to call the assessors office last year and have her home assessment frozen.

Whomever said the County Board will raise taxes by 5 or 6 percent is correct, along with what they get from the net assessment increase.

Guaranteed, there will be no soccer playing of any kind in Douglas Park as long as Zimmy lives across the street

Wall Street Journal today - municipal bonds are not a good investment, especially when your County's bond rating is being facilitated from A to AAA by the County Manager.

Did Jim Moran's Palace on the Palisades get assessed for over $10 million?

How many Arlington homes are "underwater"? Can they receive an assessment deal?

Typical reason (excuse) for large single family homes with constant assessed value - assessor is clueless about how much the home is worth. Why kind of "system" is that?

I know these conclusions are tempting, but my assessment went down $12K (I live near Yorktown HS). I don't think that reflects the generally strong real estate values in my neighborhood.

This is county kabuki-- manipulate a combination of the assessments and the tax rate to achieve the desired, bloated amount of tax revenue.
