The Tax Man Cometh
We received our property tax assessment today from the Whatcom County Assessor's Office. Not entirely clear to me how it is that, in the midst of the biggest real estate price collapse in my lifetime, our house/land's value has gone up by 10%. Just lucky I guess. Or, perhaps, that's the price you pay for all those refusals at election time to raise any other kind of tax.
