    Default Assessor came by today

    I built a 30x40 pole barn last year and the tax assessor came by today to check it out. We live in a small town so the assessor drives up from the capitol. I told him it was a pole barn with a dirt floor. After letting him in to examine, he informed me that "It's not a pole barn. A pole barn is up off the ground on poles."

    Home Made Receiver Hitch Ball Mount

    I took two pieces of scrap metal and welded myself up a slide in ball mount for the receiver hitch I installed on my truck.

    The Square tube was originally made to be installed into a receiver hitch as it came off an old wheel chair rack that mounted into the receiver hitch.

    The plate was part of a slide in camper tie down. I Pulled trailers with this ball mount for many miles without problems.

    You should have had him walk thru some manure around your place in his patent leather shoes.

    Came by my place 2 days ago, tax both open porches, any storage shed(s) and said they'd tax a dog house if it was large??? Makes my blood boil when I see how far they will go to "get in your pocket"

    We're (the town) getting a total revaluation over the next two years. Should be exciting. There is pressure developing here to collect more from property taxes, and less from income. Unless people scream, that means a higher "ransom" on keeping your property.

    In NH, you are lucky he didn't say you had a "view" pole barn.

    Default Re: Assessor came by today

    Several years ago my neighbor protested the way they assessed his property and demanded they come out and justify. We have the right to protest the county assessment by law. He was a complete a-hole and knitpicked what their process. So the assessor when by the book and measured everything to the knat's *****. Ended up costing him about $200.00 if I recall from what he said, but he made his point!
