Yesterday there was a strange SUV at the end of the driveway just sitting there but didn't come up onto our property. Daddy was busy cutting baseboards in the garage/work shop and momma saw the SUV just by chance when she was cleaning out the kitchen sink.
When daddy came into the house momma told him about the SUV but it had left before daddy could go see if someone needed some help.
Today, the mystery SUV was back but this time they came up to the house and three men got out (Yes Zoe, we barked our heads off at them) and told daddy that they were from the New Mexico County assessors office and they were here to measure our buildings and property.
They measured and one of the peoples wanted to know what types of flooring and other things were in the house so daddy gave him a guided tour.
When they left, daddy wasn’t very happy so momma asked him what was bothering him. He said that the visitors are the peoples who decide how much property taxes one has to pay yearly. He said expect the tax bill to go up now that there is a finished building on the property.
I hope that doesn’t affect the amount of cookies I get.
Good job on the barkin!
Those guys really were casin your joint!
The peepoles don't like those property tax things. Mommy had the same thought, yours are gonna go up for next time around.
Less cookies for you!
My momma gets a little mad at the those people. She says even though our house is worth less and less the property taxes keep going up and up. Indeed, the county is looking to increase your taxes and you can bet it will be many boxes of treats worth. :( My pawrents just looked at a house where the property taxes were almost $6,000! They said that was just too much and are still looking. BOL, it might take awhile.
Not advisable but don't you wish you could just bite them, BOL! BOL!
Good job at the barking, Coco Rose. My peeps also don't like the property tax people. Hope your tax bill won't be too high.
