That is when we saw the biggest rise in taxes. Now by law they have to re-appraise home values after a certain number of years. We have had a couple of re-appraisals since the initial one and with these the mill rate was either raised or lowered depending on which way the re-appraisals went but they always find a way to throw in an extra mill or two.
It wasn't just my town, it was the whole county. And it wasn't just my county, it seems it was pretty much statewide. My state has a balanced budget and money in the rainy day fund, my city has a balanced budget and money in the bank. Seems like an odd time for such a huge increase as they can't argue a need and property prices are hardly skyrocketing.
