    Here in NJ, we pay the highest property taxes in the country. After this year's assessment I'm looking at $9000/year for my $350k home. It makes me want to cry.

    Our Brooklyn, NY home is easily worth twice that and we only pay about $2400/year.

    Needless to say, when we build something, fix something, improve something, or move something it remains a secret. If I got taxed for my chicken coop, I might have to pitch a major fit [​IMG]

    @Dragonfly: We just had a new 40 gallon water heater installed by our plumber-friend. After he was finished installing it and taking the old one away, I asked "do I need a permit for that?". He said, "yeah, do you want me to get one?". "Ummm, no." "Alright, I'll haul this away where no one will find it."

    Okay, that is so completely way beyond absolutely WRONG. You shouldn't be taxed for a chicken coop! I can only hope that they don't decide that our garden beds and chicken tractor should be taxed! [​IMG]
