The Mayor’s Office just released all the new values of homes in the entire city, so now at least you can estimate what you are probably going to have to pay.
Here’s how it works. Go to this website and enter your address to find the assessed value. Either say a prayer of thanks or curse the assessor who laid eyes upon your home.
Then it gets a little complicated. City Council has not actually set the tax rate that will be applied to your new value, and that will depend on whether they decide to pass any relief measures for homeowners. Those could include the homestead exemption (remember that?) or other ways of mitigating tax increases on long-term homeowners or the elderly. Fiddle with the slider on the right where it says tax rate to estimate what you might pay.
So, what do you think? Are you surprised at your home’s new value? Tell us in the comments if you’re screwed or relieved.
