Madison Countians unsatisfied with how their property is valued have until Aug. 17 to appeal their assessments.
Tax assessment notices were mailed July 2 to all property owners in Madison County. They have 45 days to appeal their values.
Chief appraiser Robin Baker said Tuesday that he doesn’t have a tally on how many appeals have been filed so far.
“It’s not looking too bad,” said Baker. “But we usually don’t tally them until we get close to the end of the 45 days.”
Baker and other officials hope that appeals will be filed on fewer than three percent of all county properties. The state won’t accept the county’s digest — overall property value — with more than three percent of properties under appeal.
The chief appraiser said he expects tax 2009 bills can be mailed this year if the county doesn’t cross the three percent threshold.
I and everybody I know are filing appeals. These values are waaaay too high! Send the assessors office a memo about the housing market being in the worst crash ever, 'cause they apparently haven't gotten the news.

Wish someone would outline process for 1st time appealers. county officials no help.Believe more people would if they understood
It should be no problem to skip paying your taxes remember Mr. Ragland had no comment on his tax situation when approached by the media. So I guess we can take the same approach!!! You can run but you can't hide Mr.Ragland!!!
