BE THERE?? IF they can create a task force to study septic tanks they can do the same for us to create a task force staffed with select citizens having professional backgrounds and expertise appropriate to conduct of a review of the current assessment system, evaluate its effectiveness, study alternative methods of creating assessments which would result in fair, uniform, and equitable assessments commensurate with current market values, recommend and adopt positive reforms to the property tax assessment procedure and appeals process that will be beneficial to both the State and its taxpayers. See www.mlis.state.md.us and fill in bill number SB 498 for full details.
