City Assessor in Richmond Indicted by Grand Jury

On March 10, 2003, the chief of Richmond's real estate assessment office sent an e-mail message to one of his subordinates asking him to "please check my assessment," according to a report in today's Richmond Times-Dispatch, and added, "Please get this straightened out before the land book closes" on March 31. His assessment was subsequently dropped from $364,200 to $320,500, which at their real estate tax rate of $1.389 per $100 of assessed valuation would reduce his tax bill by $607.
