Congratulations to all the winners and condolences to all the losers. Once again our Republic exercised the right to determine our representatives and several Constitutional changes. But what do we do now? Should we sit back and watch and do nothing. Sorry, but I don’t think so. According to the Mississippi Tax code private property is to be taxed at “fair market value”. There is a four year cycle of mandatory evaluation which will be coming up 2014 as the last appraisals were in 2010. In the statute there is provision for appraisal at other times. I don’t mind paying my fair share of taxes, however my home as well as all of yours is worth at least 20% less than the 2006 appraisal which wasn’t changes in 2010. I am going to ask for a reduction in my home taxes based on my home being worth less. If you think your home is worth less you should ask for a reduction. In addition to paying less it will give this city administration less money to spend on swimming pools. I firmly believe that our taxes should be spent for necessary, needed and vital projeccts for our well being as citizens. What is your thought.
