SB 591 will place additional workload and burden on the County governments; thus additional labor and operational costs. All at a time when local governments are struggling with their budgets. While at first SB591 does strike me as logical, I wonder: how many times there is a vehicle assessment that is really out of line? how much tax assessed money is in the end result of any questionable amount (e.g. it takes a significant change in assessed value to create even a small change in the amount of actual taxes owed). In other words, are there even enough disputes to warrant this additional workload on the County governments? My gut says the costs will outweigh the citizen benefits.Further, Republicans have been calling for less government and here's another example of where they are creating more, and increasing costs, not cutting costs.
