As soon as I saw the property tax bill today (which was late (by the way)), I knew at once that the rate had gone up. My payment was up close to $500.
So, I checked my past bills. It sure had gone up compared to last year; 13.95% vs 12.51%,
But, I was surprised & humbled to see that it had been 13.99% in 2018. I checked what I had paid that December. It was a tad higher than what I owe next month. Smile. C’est la vie.
So to I, the question is not why did it go up this year — but why did it GO DOWN the year before.
Next year, with COVID, things could be very different. Just a thought.
