A judge ruled that properties like this were illegally over assessed. The court ordered a County wide tax reassessment that is taking place now that will substantially lower the property taxes based on the Illegal overvaluation by tax assessor when first built. Combined with the substantially lower sales price, the taxes will be just a fraction of what they are now. See attorney letter attached to MLS.
