Humphrey, Farrington & McClain seeks to protect Jackson County property owners from unlawful tax increases

If you received notice on or after June 10, and are facing an increase to your home of more than 15%, we’d like to help you.

As I shared yesterday, we did not lose this case on the merits. Instead, the Supreme Court held that a class action cannot be maintained because property owners must first appeal to the Board of Equalization and/or the State Tax Commission before they can bring a case in court.

The Supreme Court also said something else that could be very important to many homeowners in Jackson County. It said that if you did not receive notice until June 10 or later, then you can still file an appeal directly with the State Tax Commission. You have until December 31, 2023 to do so. In other words, if you have not filed an appeal, it is not too late.

If you meet this criteria—received notice on or after June 10 (or no notice at all), and your home increased more than 15%, we would like to help you. But before we can, we need some additional information from you.

Once you do, we will be in contact with you if your answers reveal that you fit the criteria. I know most of you have already filled out a questionnaire, but this is a different one. It needs to be filled out again. We cannot know if we can represent you unless you fill it out. Please fill this out as soon as possible, as we are on a tight deadline. If you wait until next week, we cannot guarantee that there will be sufficient time for us to represent you.

While disappointed with our result in the Supreme Court this week, we hope this is an avenue that can provide relief to as many homeowners as possible, even if it has to be done on an individual basis.
