Falling home values affect property tax levy

The Wall Street Journal (12/18, A6, Merrick) reports, "Falling home values and rising property taxes in many parts of the country are generating the loudest complaints about property levies since the 1970s, forcing state and local officials to address the outcry even as the housing-market slump eats into many sources of their revenue." Although there was a 50 percent increase in local property-tax collections from 2000-06, according to Census Bureau data, a report released last month by the U.S. Conference of Mayors indicated that across the country, "falling real-estate prices mean local property-tax growth probably will slow significantly, and taxes could even fall in many places." Some jurisdictions have already seen the fallout, such as Marion County, Indiana, where "a spike in real-estate tax bills" following property tax reassessments in the county "caused a backlash this summer." Consequently, the Indiana governor "stepped in, freezing tax bills for Marion and several other counties at 2006 levels pending a new round of assessments."

Many locations may be reluctant to re-assess knowing that tax revenue will fall.

High quality? This is pretty low quality. The facebook font can be a rip-off of a Process typefoundry typeface. Buy some proper typeface for which skilled persons put real time and effort into it. Of course it costs a bit, but you'll be better off. And considering the amount of time, effort and expertise is required for producing typefaces, they are still very cheap.

Excellent post.Never knew this, regards for letting me know.

What a lovely day for a 1746094! SCK was here

As soon as I discovered this website I went on reddit to share some of the love with them.

Good info and right to the point. I am not sure if this is truly the best place to ask but do you folks have any thoughts on where to hire some professional writers? Thanks in advance :)

I like this website its a master peace ! .

I am not really good with English but I come up this very leisurely to interpret.

If you think about it, Facebook has almost a billion users. When they charged $.99 US per month, they would earn over 10 Billion $US per year! Yet, there is no need to charge anything to users (and risk losing audience) because they generate revenue from advertisers and partners, and they can increase advertising rates to earn more, when they wish. No advertiser is going to turn down the opportunity to reach a billion people today.

qualifications on it. Thanks to the share!

Hi, I have paid for 2 months of letters and have not received any yet. How do I get that fixed?

I sent a link to the article my friend.

The Census Bureau should add to the statistics how many would-be entrepreneurs can not get loans. They should also add that SBA backed loans are total propaganda. They should also add how many people go out of business because taxes and merchant credit card fees are killer....

The student found in the pool is still alive, and the accident is not considered suspicious. We will have more details regarding both events in our Monday issue.

These are all very important facts to know these days. So many people think it will never matter to them! Thanks for info! =)

I don't think the census is accurate at all....too many people lie about who is living with them....especially illegals. Unfortunately no one wants to talk about this or come up with a way to correctly guess how many of illegals use all of the services you and I pay for....

Given that the exact phrase "for the purpose, among others, of" has been well attested for more than two hundred years, I don't think anyone could argue that "for the purpose of" necessarily means "for the sole purpose of". The article tries to imply that the prosecutors' case would require "for the purpose of" to mean "for a purpose of", but that's simply not how the words "the" and "a" work; it's obvious that "the purpose of ___" does not imply that no other purposes exist, just as "the tall man" does not imply that no other men exist. I think that the "the"/"a" question is really a red herring. The same question could be posed with an expression like "for fun": if a law forbade contributions that were made "for fun", would that imply that it only forbade contributions that were made "just for fun", or would it imply that it forbade any contributions where fun was a motivating factor? (As Jon Weinberg says, the real question is legislative intent.)

In everyday language 'for the purpose of' certainly can't be replaced by 'for a purpose of'. Is it significant legally that the statute omits words like 'sole' or 'main''for the sole/main purpose of'?

Ha! Yes, that would be fun. But, the problem with handheld games right now is the fragmentation of devices. The only device that interests big game companies is the iPhone, and they don't have a video API.

I dunno, some moms might want this sort of thing. Not mine, although.

Once you are Denied from NC State, you must re-apply in order to be considered for another major choice. You will need to log on to your WolfPAW account and download the application update form located under "Print Forms", then you can mail that in for another chance to be reviewed for a different major.

Thank God I found this discussion. I was so angry at Ms Acocella that I had started to write my very own letter to the editor. I'm very relieved to learn that better minds (and pens) than mine have undertaken this rebuttal. I hate how any twit who speaks a language automatically considers themselves a linguist (I love the gender neutral plural btw, and have not shied away from teaching it as tomorrow's standard English to my ESL students)...

I like Rebecca's strategy!

Asymptomatic hyperuricemia is simply not usually handled unless the blood UA amount is exceedingly large. Now I really don't know about you, but to me, coffee is undoubtedly an herb, and there is lots of other reports that have revealed the way you can bonus from herbs for gout treatment. 1 apple on a daily basis may help to decrease uric acid amounts.

Wow girls! Despite the rain you have still managed some amazing pictures! How interesting to be learning about indigenous plants and horticultural design! Miss you all!

What I want to know is why, when I received the first questionaire, filled it out and returned it only 2 days after receiving it, so when I received the follow up questionaire, I threw it away (since I had already completed this and returned it), and now I have a census taker knocking on my door. Why I am being overwelled with census and others are not getting anything at all. This is very frustrating, especially when we are doing what is asked of us, to avoid being bothered with people showing up at our homes. If I wanted a census taker at my home, I would have not filled out my paperwork. Where did it go?

Alas, no, it hasn't been released, and probably never will be.

Great list fo fonts, i particularly liek the scribble one, are we able tore sue these comercially (all of them) ?

The problem here isn't really that Will is making up facts, it is that newspapers are publishing his columns with such misinformation instead of pulling the column.

Many of the field management have given up important parts of their lives over the last 4 years. We did this to get the 2010 census done. We did not take vacations, worked nights and weekends for no extra pay. We were told by the director that the regional are critically important to the work of the census bureau. I gave the census my complete loyalty. That loyalty is now completely gone. The experience that is now walking out the door will ultimately hurt the bureau and will costly it more money. I ask myself why did I put my life on hold for the last four years. The director told us in person last year how important we were, and he asked us to help him improve the census process. This is the thanks we got.

Maybe we should go back to our founding fathers' $20.00 or more fine for non compliance. Print that on the form and envelope. This will get more participation then the mere 2% increases. Maybe even help balance the budget as long as congress don't get their grubby hands on it..

I agree. I was recently playing this game and was not entirely satisfied with the single player experience. Homefront is visually interesting but the gameplay is a bit lacking. Enjoyable but definitely not a Call of Duty or Gears of War.

It is a simple math problem to explain ID and UT. Few low taxpayer mormon adults having tons of kids/spirit babies= low educational funds per kid...but hey, they can learn to read once they get to heaven.

If I was Benedict Cumbertbatch or anyone from his PR team, I'd be a bit annoyed by this journalist and her supposed joke. Only a bit though, considering I'd be English and would therefore before be too concerned with politeness.

I like GKPs neatly phrased pseudo-excuses, which take thought to conjure for our benefit, but others may not care for them. Just bear in mind that offence is something that can only be taken, never given.
