To the editor:
You read politician speak; now read taxpayer speak.

Everyone, take your 2012 tax assessment and divide by .5758 to get the full 2012 tax value. Multiply that answer by 2.771. Now compare that answer with the amount you paid in 2012 to find the tax increase based upon the old assessment and you will see that the taxes are being raised by 13.8 percent. This is before the new assessment.
