just got my property tax bill from the county, it's increased almost 20% since last year. WTF is this? I'm pretty sure the land hasn't increased 20% in value in the last year. anyone else getting bills like this? BTW this is raw land in the middle of nowhere, so I didn't get any services for it at all, not even road maintainance.

Mine in Phoenix went up 25%

That is how they are going to make up for the drop in sales tax revenue.

Its because of school districts and fire districts no doubt, Since property values are down they have less money, so they raise thier rates to make it up.

Cornville has it right. This is why we make sure the assessed value of the property is reduced. If you did it right it's almost a wash.

Yeah we tried to vote against it in Phoenix just last month.... We lost. Apparently people like being taxed.
