Potsdam assessments used to avoid tax cap?
It is easy to see why Potsdam is raising the assessments and no one has brought it up yet. It is the back door around the 2 percent tax cap. If your assessment goes up then the 2 percent total goes up as well. What is the percent of value now, I think it is 92 or 93 percent. At my current assessment to make it up to 100 percent would be $5,800 more in assessment. They want to raise mind by $17,600, it is getting to the point that if they want to write me a check for my assessed value they can have it I’ll be out in a week and out of the state as well.
