Did anyone who is NOT wealthy and/or powerful appeal their property taxes to the Liberty County Commission?

Yes the real answer lies at the ballot box.

However it should begin with a total reevaluation of the entire county.

And it should be performed by someone unfamiliar with any of the locals.

We need an unbiased evaluation.

If you carefully examine the digest records there are glaring examples of favoritism in all parts of the county.

Sorry about that.

The four tax refund requests reported on are the only ones that went before the Liberty County Board of Commissioners last week.

The appeal process is different; property owners have 45 days from the date of their property assessments to appeal the value through the assessors office. Those appeals are handled internally and, as such, are not as "newsworthy" because they do not warrant public action from the Board of Commissioners.

In the first case, staff members are able to correct errors and make adjustments before any money exchanges hands. In the case of these refunds, people have paid their taxes on the properties in question but are seeking money back.

I hope this clarifies any questions. It's a complex issue.
