Between my car insurance, my medical insurance, and my property taxes I'm going to be listing my home next! Time to downsize I think...just need some more of my kids to get their own places (and their own car insurance)!

Tax assessments can be appealed. Ask your assessor's office what the process is. Cities do not automatically reduce assessed value even when values drop 20% to 50%.

Maybe if you sold them their houses you could afford to stay. lol. Car insurance is almost as insane as the tax man anymore. Yikes.

Very sorry but certainly understand. I just deposit escrow checks and write quarterly payments to the Feds and State. Then my tax man says here...pay this amount? Seems like all we do is pay taxes, insurance and yes lets not forget gasoline now. Cannot believe I paid $3.85 per gallon yesterday at Sam's Club and thought that was a good price; yes down from $4.00 per gallon.

Good Luck Lois

Thanks, everyone! I think we're all in the same boat! Our town is currently being reassessed. I'll wait and see what that does to my taxes before I appeal. Maybe they'll go down! yeah...right!  Randy, I did sell my first one to move out her home...then used the entire commission helping to renovate it! oh well...it's vacation time! I'm getting ready to drive down to Florida - gonna be an expensive trip this time with gas as high as it is!  Life in the good ol' USA 2011!
