So whenever a property is sold, the new owner pays tax based on the uncapped (and usually much higher) value. None of the knucklehead realtors or mortgage brokers explain this to their first time buyers, so a lot of 20 and 30-somethings who are buying their first homes in my area get a big surprise when they get their adjusted tax bill after the first year, and many get taxed out of their own homes after just 12 or 18 months.
Yup, they will "correct" it at the first opportunity on the back of a new homeowner.
