Thank you for your extensive coverage by Tax Assessor Richard Lightner as to why the Macon County Board should delay the revaluation of the county property until 2015 (your eight year cycle), which they did for valid reasons. It made me realize Jackson County’s board must be subverting the N.C. tax laws with a 2013 revaluation agenda, instead of an eight year cycle of 2016, which they were!
With public records providing a paper trail, speaking out at their board meetings, letters to the editor, Sylva Herald, and holding up a sign over and over that said “Jackson County’s commissioners postpone county revaluation to 2016”. Don’t rob over 38,000 citizens to fund your budget of over 58.1 million while lowering taxes for your political base Cashiers/Glenville area. They knew a 2013 revaluation would do just that!
