    assessed value is supposed to be the same as market value. I believe towns were falling behind at some point and there was a concerted effort to bring the two in line around 2008.

    In any event, I've seen nothing so far indicating market value went down at all from his easement donation, let alone by 281K. It seems he didn't ask the town to revisit, and lower, his property taxes. If my house had (legitimately) lost 15 percent of its value or so, I'd ask for a new assessment. Operative word is "legitimately."

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
