Island County assesses property too high
September 21, 2010 · Updated 2:27 PM
The citizens of Island Country are being ripped off horribly by the assessor and commissioners. The housing market crashed three years ago to at least 25 percent of the high water mark, yet our assessments are being maintained at that high level. This causes all homeowners to pay excess property taxes plus we are also required to pay excess homeowners insurance.
Add the numbers up and you’ll find that the county owes homeowners well over a million in rebates and penalties.
