Property tax assessors tell Ed Angleton "It is not fair"

Full story at Ed Angleton Rants:
In 2007, five homeowners in the Cottage Home Neighborhood on the Near Eastside saw assessments increase approximately 4 times the previous years assessment. Ed Angleton's assessment jumped to $256,000. He attended all the rallies, filed an appeal, and spoke unkindly about the ability of the Center Township Assessor's Office to assess their way out of a paper bag.

Ed's neighbors did nothing. Now comes the reassessment.

Angleton's assessment dropped from $256,000 to $232,000. His neighbor's assessment dropped from $225,00 to $141,300.

On his blog, Ed points to two other neighbors who exprienced similar decreases, one for $193,00 to $114,000 and another that went from $254,400 to $170,200.

When he complained the assessor's office told him it was not fair.
