During the boom years, Jackson County’s tax digest grew massively as new construction and property values soared. Even in 2008, the county’s digest — that is the value of all taxable property in the county — grew by nearly eight percent.
But this year, a preliminary county report indicates the digest may grow by only one percent — and that may be a high estimate given the large number of assessment appeals being filed.
The deadline for assessment appeals is July 13. So far, 512 appeals have been filed.
