New Tax Assessments Raise Questions In Piedmont Area

Many residents of the Piedmont area have questions after receiving their 2012 property taxes earlier this month.

Meade County Director of Equalization, Kirk Chaffee, met with members of Piedmont's Board of Trustees and residents on Monday night to address changes in 2012 property taxes according to an article in the Rapid City Journal. Most  taxes increased 20-90% with some increasing more than 100%, causing concern to many in the city. Chaffee also met with ag land owners when changes in state law also increased taxes for them as stated in a Meade County Times Tribune article. The most extreme increases for ag land were 500%.
