Greenville County, SC, sent us a Notice of Classification, Appraisal & Assessment of Real Estate Tax Year 2015, and claimed that our property value has increased by something like 15%. So we wrote them a letter on October 31, 2015, and told them that, in fact, it has been devalued by Greenville County by their making our private road into a one-way street for the convenience of Roper Mountain Estates subdivision (where County Councilman Jim Burns lives) that uses it as if it’s their own road, and for using it as a sewer-way for a nearby barbecue joint over our objections. Interestingly, on February 24, 2015, Jim Burns announced that he would not seek re-election as County Councilman.
On March 5, 2016, we received the following “Reconciliation” payment from Greenville County, SC (although it is dated “Feb 25, 2016″), with no details of what it’s about. Did everyone in the County get a check like this? We went to the County to find out what is to be “reconciled.”
It turns out that all of our hardships have made us $14.49 back. Who says Greenville County is not reasonable!
