  •  The appraisal (0+ / 0-)

    said the house went DOWN in value at a time when the market was white-hot. The town's assessment for property taxes didn't go down; the house rose in value by some 600K in the four years after the easement/deduction. Both of the appraisers were referred by a nonprofit the IRS sued in 2011 for being a clearinghouse for tax evasion. All that seems questionable to me.

    But you're right, my main problem is with Gomez.

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
