Howell Reassessment Blamed For $1.4 million Decline In Revenue

It was because of all those successful appeals that the county ordered a recently completed assessment. “The assessment further caused a significant decline in revenue due to declining housing market values,” the email continued. “To make up this loss in revenue, the municipal tax rate needed to rise if local services were to be maintained.”
