IN 1999 the Raleigh City Council passed a resolution that tax rates should remain "revenue neutral" in years when property in the city is revaluated.

In fact, former City Manager Dempsey Benton stated in the News & Observer "That's always been our practice." (N&O 2-18-00)

Let's see if Boylan Heights Mayor Meeker and his merry band of newcomers respect tradition or find yet another way to financially burden Raleigh taxpayers with a hidden tax increase. They've done that in the past with fee increases. Maybe the revaluation will be 2008's version of a tax increase.

Americans for Prosperity NC held a great overview of the revaluation process for Wake County residents last night.

This is the first of two steps to keep the reassesment process from impacting your family's financial health for the worse. The second step is to step up and let the county commissioners know that you want the reassesment to be revenue neutral.

There is currently a move afoot by the
downtown elites to further tax Wake County homeowners by hiding a tax increase in the revaluation process.
