I remain puzzled by my experience with the 2010 property reassessment process. A native of Roane County, living here 47 of my 52 years, I have supported the county government by paying property taxes for many of those years.
The January 2010 reassessment increases my property value on five of six parcels from 5-23 percent. This I can comprehend.
On one parcel, the reassessment increased the property value 152 percent.
I tried to understand where Roane County came up with the information to substantiate a 152-percent increase.
