Real property not being undervalued

-A A +A
By The Staff

A recent article in the Mora Communicator dated May 16-30 attempts to portray me and my deputy as intentionally undervaluing our personal property. Please note, the property is not personal, it is real property. The Mora Communicator’s staff of one didn’t have the courtesy of talking with me. In any case, it has been previously reported that practically all properties are undervalued because of the grazing status with practically none overvalued. It is also common knowledge that further studies/reappraisals will be forthcoming.

The Property Tax Division has been a party to not performing regular appraisals, as reflected in writing to the assessor in yearly evaluation reports available in my office. The lack of need of more employees has been noted by the division to various county commissioners.
