Now that the homes in Stanislaus County have dropped as much as 50 percent, is the Stanislaus County assessor going to reduce the assessed value of our homes?
I would encourage the citizens in Stanislaus County and the Stanislaus Taxpayers Association to contact the county assessor office and ask for a tax reduction.
With the numerous job losses in Stanislaus County and numerous home foreclosures, we deserve lower taxes.
Editor's note: If people have a question or believe the value of their home is below the assessment value, they should call 525-6461 to request a value review, which would affect tax amounts for 2008-09. The assessor's office advises that people who have been in their homes for more than five years probably would not qualify for a reduction.
