UrbanTurf Reader Asks: Are DC Homeowners Seeing Their Tax Assessments Increase?: Figure 1

In this week’s installment of UrbanTurf Reader Asks, a reader who bought a foreclosure in 2009 and saw the assessed value increase significantly this year wonders if other DC homeowners have experienced similar increases.

I bought a foreclosure in the H Street area in October of 2009 and the assessed value on the property tax bill I received for this fiscal year is $100,000 more than I paid for it. I'm curious if other readers have had similar experiences, or whether they've gone through the appeals process. I've filled out the form and am beginning the process, but I'm sure many others are in a similar situation with the wild fluctuations in home values.
