It's like going to Vegas and betting against the house. You aren't going to win.
Three simple reforms I'd like to see:

1. The same entity that benefits from the taxes should not be the same entity that decides the value those taxes are based on

2. The city or county should not be allowed to foreclose on a property for unpaid taxes. They should be collectable only upon sale of the property by the owner and only after any primary lien holders have been paid.

3. Annual increases should be limited to the rate of inflation a la Proposition 13.

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

I have to keep reminding myself this isn't a Z16 convertible, Evening Orchid Camaro, or factory 1966 SS427 and get on with it.
