Correcting the county

I recently posted on my meeting with our county tax assessor to figure out why they had our house assessed at about $25,000 over what we paid for it.

I got a call from the assessor today. They dropped their assessment by around $20,000. Since closing costs were wrapped into our loan, it's now assessed at less than what our loan was for (though around $4,600 more than what we technically paid for the house itself).

I'm happy. The market may be depressed, but we did get a good deal.

Lesson learned: if you think the government is wrong, you're probably right, and if you call them out on it, chances are you just might win. After all, it may be the government, but it is run by real people...
