Assessments through the roof in Northern
Virginia

Rising price of the American Dream

Good question and response at the live discussion going on right now –

Q: Is there any statutory limit in
Virginia on how much a tax appraisal can rise per year? Here in Texas the limit
is 10 percent, and there is a popular movement growing to lower that to 3-5
percent. But the cities and counties that rely on property taxes have a hard
time giving up their automatic annual revenue
increases.

Answer: Virginia
has no restrictions, although some state candidates proposed such a limit in the
last round of elections.

Ah, a
limitation on property tax increases … what will they think of next?
Assessments are up everywhere!
