No luck on trying to get our properts assessment down.
I spoke with the assessor's office on Friday. The average increase for this neighborhood from 2002 to 2006 was 49 %. Ours only went up 44%, so I suppose I should consider myself lucky. Wauwatosa used to reassess every eight years, but now will do it every four.
The City tax rate should drop significantly. However, the portion that the State, County and school district takes probably won't change. We will see how much more we will contribute.
