Each town has to get x dollars in taxes each year to pay their bills.  The towns take the total value of the property in the town and divided it up among the value of all the homes in town.  All the reval does is realocate the formula.  In a perfect world a reval is a good thing as it should make taxes more fair as market condtions change.
