Director Of Equalization2019 ag land assessments to increase drastically

When it comes to county taxation, who decides what’s fair? Not the Director of Equalization. Not the County Commissioners. It is the state legislature’s job to do that. When the fairness map changed in 2010, Roberts County missed the boat. The result of that mistake will show up in the assessments that go out to tax payers on March 1, payable in 2020. If Robert County’s Director of Equalization, Shari Gamber has her wish, the shock will be phased in over three years. For more on this story please purchase a copy of this weeks Sisseton Courier on news stands now.
