A Lesson in Creative Assessing
In light of the property tax fiasco, with the township and county assessors pointing their collective fingers at the DLGF and vice versa, here's a little study in how not to assess. These are 4 houses in Center Township, all located within the same neighborhood. Which one was accurately assessed? What does this say about the quality of the assessment done by the Center Township Assessor's office?
Exhibit 1: 1215 Polk St - Assessed Value $258,000
Exhibit 2: 1210 Polk St - Assessed Value $52,400
Exhibit 3: 730 Dorman St - Assessed Value $47,800
Exhibit 4: 711 Dorman St - Assessed Value $ 197,300
