Huntington Beach CA – I just saw the second of two articles about homeowners losing their home or property because of high property taxes. Most of the stories were based in the Northeast, where the property taxes are much more expensive.
In one story, http://www.wbaltv.com/r/25677444/detail.html, a Maryland Woman is going on a hunger strike to bring attention to the situation.
The story makes it sound like high property taxes caused her mortgage payment to go up by 40%. That is a huge jump in property taxes. I have seen some people’s property taxes jump by several hundred dollars myself.
In another story, a lady in Connecticut lost some property next to her house after a drawn out tax dispute. Here is the link to the news report: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFQzxY2Mlxo. The new owner of the land put up a chain blocking the driveway that she uses to access her property.
You would think that in a time of economic trouble, the cities and counties would be lowering our property taxes not raising them!
Most American’s income has gone down, not up. But, that doesn’t stop the cities and counties from raising property tax rates.
