Anyone see a decrease in property taxes this week?

Remember how we were promised property tax cuts? My “cut” is seeing an increase in the “market value” of the house, which translates into a tax increase for this year’s tax bill over last year’s.

I heard Republican candidates locally and at the state levels promising to lower our property taxes — you heard them too. Maybe the tax cuts are only for those who valuations didn’t change.

I’d like to know how many Erath County residents’ home valuations were not increased at all.
