    If y'all remember good ol' boy Kenny Lay, that sleazy SOB and his equally sleazy (and probably very well off these days) wifey were claiming a homestead property tax exemption from two different Texas counties * .
    In 2001, both on their $7Mil River Oaks/Houston/Harris county deluxe 12,827sf penthouse 'condo' at The Huntingdon, and their Galveston county $1.5Mil Pirate's Beach fancy beachhouse(s).
    Clue: you only get one of those exemptions, but IOKIYAR.
    And then Kenny ... 'disappeared' ...
    (* I can substantiate this)

    BTW, a careful examination of your local property tax records (if readily available, luv dem toobs) may turn up many examples of how wealthier areas are undervalued, poorer ones overvalued.
