Steven Sampson, 41, got stabbed in the shoulder. So far, that’s the only credible detail about his story, the New York Police Department says.

The downtrodden real estate market could have a significant impact on the number of real estate tax appeals lodged by property owners in some North Carolina counties. Under state law, counties are required to conduct county-wide revaluations every eight years, although some counties may choose to revalue more frequently. For 2011, approximately 29 counties were scheduled to revalue real property as of January 1, 2011, including larger counties such as Mecklenburg, Johnston, New Hanover, Catawba and Brunswick.*With property values declining, especially in coastal communities, local governments will be forced to either raise tax rates or get by with less revenue.

Accordingly, the new values assessed in 2011 could be significantly higher than the actual, true market value as of January 1, 2011 and … [Read more...] about Fiscal Uncertainty and Recession Could Result in More Property Tax Appeals (NC)
