Lubbock Residents Protest Property Appraisals

A dozen Lubbock home-owners are protesting the latest appraisal rate of their properties.

"I hope for the appraisal district to realize they can not keep doing this to the public anymore," said Trudy Trombley. 

"Because they're raising them astronomically every year," continued Scott Miller. "My pay rate increases maybe three percent, when my taxes increase ten percent every year for the last five years."

On Tuesday, citizens gathered at the Lubbock Central Appraisal District to contest rising appraisal rates. The average home value in Lubbock county has increased from $96,000 in 2007 to almost $104,000 dollars in 2008.

In most cases, raising the appraisal rating means higher tax payments on the property.
