After explaining the <br />hearing process Chairman Marlow swore them in. The property under appeal consists of a residence located <br />on 1.6 acres in Port Townsend. Ms. Northup stated that the assessment of her property doubled in one year. <br />She asked if other properties in the area were also reassessed or was she singled out? The current assessment <br />of the property is $122,585 ($33,900 for the land and $88,685 for the improvements). Ms. Northup estimates <br />the property value to be $103,565 ($18,000 for the land and $85,565 for the improvements). <br /> <br />Mr. Kingsley explained that all the property in the area was reassessed and Ms. Northup was not singled out. <br />He presented sales of comparable property which indicate that the market value of the appellant's property has <br />increased. <br /> <br />Discussion ensued regarding comparable sales. <br /> <br />Ms. Northup added that she just recently lost her husband and she must now pay this big increase in taxes all <br />on her own. <br />
