How is that at all reasonable? Should the government get a 32% increase in taxes when the housing market is too high? Would they give me a 32% reduction if the market busts? I don't remember seeing anywhere near a 30% reduction in 2008 when it DID bust at my old house (also in Jackson County).

I bought home for $204k as a Bank foreclosure 5 years ago. Last year, 2018, the house was valued at $240K. 2019, now they say $323K. My property tax is going up from $4170 to $5508 per year. That's coming up on $500 a month, which perhaps I'm still just a country boy - but that seems insane to me.

Yippie, an extra $112 bucks a month on Jackson County taxes over last years tax...

--------

I know I wouldn't get $323K for this house if I were to put it on the market. Stuff isn't even selling in my neighborhood, we see signs posted, and nothing's moving here. I think people expect to get these inflated prices, and have listed their houses, but nobody is paying that. Or maybe the market just isn't hot in this neighborhood???

@carp you remember that group of mansions south on 19th St? EVERY single one of them, 100% of them are for sale. It's wild driving down the street and seeing all the signs in the yard. Maybe it's these property tax increases that are making them sell...

Anyway I'm steamed - property taxes are a sham. Megan and I will try to argue ours by filling out the documentation, but that's a crappy subjective process too. It seems to me the property tax values should be a fixed adjustment every year the same as all your neighbors at least. I was talking to my neighbor about it and while my house went up 32% his house went up 15%. His house we both know is much nicer than mine, and in much better shape in every way. He said I should argue it because it's not right that two houses immediately next to each other would see a 17% difference in cyclical county evaluation.
Why balance a budget when you can just raise taxes? I tried to argue it as well for our rental, just like Chirpie. JOCO said that was market value and showed me the comparisons. All of the comparisons were renovated and better lots. I showed them pictures of my house and Zillow pictures of the comparisons. I explain that if both houses were on the market, clearly mine wouldn't sell for the price of a completely renovated home. They truly didn't care. I lost.

That is exactly what is happening. And even more depressing is if you appeal and win they are likely to do the same percent and more in the next few years, which will then start the cycle again.

Without going into specifics there is a municipality that I know locally that refuses to use standard Assessment software that bases it's increases on the State endorsed rates. Why? Because the City comes to them with an amount they want, the Assessor then creates the needed rates to hit the revenue target. It's crooked, but the public is largely apathetic and the press is too busy paying attention to what politician said what and who's feelings were hurt by it to report on something so "mundane".

The burb I live in has consistently hit the Top 10 cities for growth lists for years now and my appraisals regularly go up double digits. It's insane, but I know that appealing it will at best buy me a year of reprieve. Of course if I sell, everything in the area is inflated at the same rate, so I wouldn't get ahead there either. Sigh

Kansas City Area Home Theater Meets and Movie Night Events!

Just watched Mortal Engines

B- or C+

Atmos audio was fun. Story was interesting, but a bit of a cheesy premise. Acting was only soso.

Not Peter Jackson’s best work, but might be a couple of demo clips worth in it.

Not something I’ll ever need to rewatch in full.

You think when they make these movies they realize it’s missing something before release? Or do they just set out from the getgo thinking a B rated movie is the extent of their goal? When you spend tens of millions of dollars on CGI, why not spend tens of thousands of dollars on better writing/dialogue that’s doesn’t sound like a junior high school play?

It was fun to watch, but agree not one I would sit down and watch again and again. We watched some of the extras on the disk and it was more interesting on how they did things to make the movie and they did build a huge set for London that was impressive. Funny how trailers can make a movie look really good, but it doesn't always live up to it most times.

I am wanting to see the new X men movie Phoenix Rising, but not sure we will get around to it or not.

I watched Glass tonight.

Somehow I missed that there was a sequel to Unbroken called Split. So I'll have to go back and catch that one. Glass was pretty intense. I liked it. Started out being way too creepy, but ended strong.

After Glass, I went back to the Spiderman: Spiderverse movie and watched the "How Will I Know" scene, when Miles figures out he can be Spider-Man and it's got the fantastic music and adrenaline pumping scene! I turned it up to reference (with the subs my typical 6-9 dB hot, and was sitting down here grinning while vibrating like around like I was on an amusement park ride in my BOSS inspired direct mount subwoofer loaded chairs, when my wife walked down the stairs with that look where I know --- whoops I'm in trouble. She said you know you don't live alone. I said I know, but the kids don't get woken upstairs right? She said it's rude, and the bass is making all the electronic toys go off in the toy room. Turn it down.

haha. We'll that's the first time she's ever mentioned anything about the toyroom.

I'm still smiling.

I love that Spiderman movie. I was also impressed with the bass. First time we watched it my wife just looked over and said wow.

Glad to see y'all are still active.

Just upgraded my Epson 5010e to the new Epson 5050ub. Found myself hunting avsforum for some info and remembered y'all.

Rearranged the theater and relocated the two dts-10s for some better sound.

Also built my av rack into the wall.

About to slap a new vdo card into the htpc to utilize 4k output.

I have thought of doing this as well for my theater that I hope get completed this year. I have a rolling rack and was thinking of just framing out a hole for it to sit in and build a door to hid it or tinted glass door on the front.

On the 4K front, I thought I was done upgrading any older titles with the possible exception of Game of Thrones, since I had finally got updates to rest of the Matrix trilogy, and the first two Avengers films.

However, when I was skimming through the file last night, I was kind of blown away by the visual improvement I saw on The Avengers. I heard it was a pretty nice improvement, but was not expecting that. Now I'm wondering if I should update the other Marvel films as they are released in 4K.

I've been updating them. Disney is using a 2K DI for effects on these, so there is a limit to how much more detail you're going to see. But the increased color and range is beneficial and I don't regret updating them.

Heh ZLTFUL (Ryan) and I were at a Worst Buy and they had the super dooper 8K Samsung on display with an 8K demo going. We both looked at it and the 4K LG OLED next to it and both agreed we'd take the OLED. There's only so many pixels you can make out. 8K is definitely hitting diminishing returns.

Sounds like you should join the class action lawsuit. Johnson County's approach now makes sense. They are idiots as well. They claim "market value", but don't actually have access to the market values. It's like I said before, when you need more money, just raise taxes. Why work on a budget? I'm going to try that logic with my boss for a raise.

We just went through (buyer) inspections on our house and I can tell you Jackson County was off by 90k+ on the actual sale price vs their projected market value. I would have loved to sell the county my house and I'd have offered a 25K discount off "their market value" price.

Probably the same on rental that is in Johnson County. It went up, but there is no way I could get what they think it is worth since the person who owns the other half of my duplex doesn't want to maintain their half and it is bringing down the value of mine if we sold it.

Kansas City Area Home Theater Meets and Movie Night Events!

I submitted my name with the Class Action information gathering linked in this article.

https://www.kctv5.com/news/investiga...hVgf2wLsK2ntck

We have .75 acres and our land was assessed at > 60k. The neighbor immediately next to me has 2 acres and his was assessed at 32K. The neighbor 2 houses down from there has 2.5 acres and his land was assessed at 34k. The house value is one thing, but shouldn't the property values on the same street be in reasonably obvious linear parity? They have 3x the property and yet 1/2 the tax assessment value on the same street. Anyway I contacted that lawyer with my info - cause it looks like she's seeing that type of land value negligence all over the city. That's probably an easier battle to win than house appraisal value. Maybe some of you may want to as well of yours were jacked, in Jackson county.

That is ridiculous that their land value is lower then yours, especially since theirs are bigger. Probably what will happen is yours will stay the same and theirs will go up. I would love to buy 2.5 acres for 32K. That is a pretty good deal compared to what it cost in Clay county where I live. An acre last I knew was around 100K or more here.

Perhaps you should stop mining BTC and start mining for gold on your own property. Maybe Jackson county knows something you don't...

If anyone is around Sunday the 28th (evening) through Wednesday the 31st, I'll be downtown MO side for a seminar, and I'd love to check anyone's setup willing to show-and-tell. I'm looking for inspiration and input as I start my second build some time in September in my new house. I've met some of you at the Minneapolis GTG 2 years ago; figured I'd reach out.

Thanks!

Thanks!

Swing by my place. I like to demo my gear! It’ll be fun to visit again too. I live in blue springs. About a 20 miles, or a half hour east of downtown KC.
