Follow up on Skagit property taxes
Posted by Liberty on December 2, 2008
“Dennis Thomas has lived on his five-acre property near Concrete for 35 years. He figures his assessment has gone up more than 50 percent in two years. Officials from the Assessor’s Office have claimed that rural five-acre lots like Thomas’ remain in high demand, which would partially explain the increase.
‘I think that would be debatable if you talk to any of the Realtors up here,’ Thomas said. Anything in the $200,000 to $400,000 price range “is absolutely not moving,” he said.”
Apparently I wasn’t the only one surprised by Skagit County’s valuation of my property. This article goes on to say that they have already received hundreds of appeals. The last day to appeal your assessment is December 5. The Skagit County Assessor’s website has tax information and a link to the appeal form.
