Tax assessment way out of whack

So got my tax assessment today; let’s see, real estate value up 2 percent, Snohomish County assessment 72 percent, what a crock. Seriously, the tax value is higher then what an agent would list my property for, again seriously, what a crock. You know what elected officials need to be voted out and this county needs a freakin’ reality check. Who in the heck (wanted to say something else) do they think they are, stop smoking that there legal marijuana and realize they’re not god. Sending a tax assessment like this is insulting and a freakin’ joke. They all deserve to be impeached, imprisoned or both. They are robbing struggling taxpayers for their own greedy, self-righteous gains profits and self-serving inflated salaries. Do us all a favor, just quit now, resign.
