Did you get your property assessment increase in the mail? Everybody I discussed it with got a 25% or better Property APPRAISAL INCREASE. The good news is Blount County residents can freeze their property taxes if you are over 65 and income qualified. Alcoa and Maryville residents cannot freeze their property taxes because their City Councils have not passed the adopting legislation making it possible since 2007.
The good news is state law says the County when establishing it’s NEW Certified tax rate it must
bring in NO MORE REVENUE THAN IT DID THE PREVIOUS YEAR. However since the Berong/Mitchell Pay Raise passed without allowing public comment.
Now just like 4 years ago the Certified TAX RATE voted on in May must be changed if the UNSUBSTANCIATED and EXCESSIVE PAY RAISE to 58 percent more EARNINGS than the US Census Fact Finder workforce tax payer in Blount County, will be paid by the Berrong /Mitchell Administration.
If you keep your taxes check your last tax property tax ASSESSMENT of 4 years ago and combine
the two increases and let WBCR know if your Property Tax Assessment has gone up over 50 percent
in 8 years like ours. Call 984-1470.
The May 7th Budget Committee meeting will be very important for we should learn what the Certified Tax Rate will be however at the Special called Blount County School Board meeting of April 15 it was reported that they would be requesting a 32 cent PROPERTY TAX INCREASE TO RAISE $11.1 MILLION for the High Schools renovation projects through Fund 177 that does not share any tax money with the cities of Alcoa and Maryville.
If you divide 32 cents into $11.1 you get the value of the penny the School board is using for this request is $348,875. Compared to $306,000 at the Tax Certification Rate of $ 2.11 four years ago. If that is the case that would mean a 14 percent growth in the value of the property tax rate valuation resulting in a 14 percent reduction the PROPERTY TAX RATE down .37 cents to 2.10 Certified TAX RATE for FY 19/20.
Right back to where it was four years ago before the Berrong/Mitchell 36 cent property TAX INCREASE TO FUND PAYING THE PER CAPITA RATE OF COUNTY EMPLOYEES 47 PERCENT MORE THAN THE 2017 PER CAPITA WORKFORCE TAXPAYER IN BLOUNT COUNTY.
The PARROTED reporting by the Daily Times quoting the Architects moisture intrusion findings have been refuted by the on sight inspection with the William Blount Head Custodian and photographic evidence provided by WBCR to the Director of Schools.
The industrial dehumidifiers at William Blount are necessary because the HVAC pipes have not been maintained properly thus producing water condensation flooding the 50 yard hallway south of the library and several adjacent classrooms when the AC is running.
According to Architects Agreement between the School board and Michael Brady, Inc in addition
to a $567 thousand fee for putting the renovation proposal in writing they are paid 5 and a half percent of the TOTAL Cost of the Work for Construction Administration, bid document preparation, and construction documents. Thus the bigger the project the more they are paid.
