'Shake 'n Bake' -- Arlington Style

For as long as I have lived in Arlington County, when it comes to taxes, the mantra of the County Board has been "but we have the lowest tax rate in the region." Folks, it still hasn't changed! In last week's press release announcing the 24% increase for the average single-family residence in Arlington, the last bullet repeats the 'lowest tax rate in the region' mantra.

The spinmeisters do provide two useful pieces of information, however, which are the dates for appealing assessments. They are:

Departmental -- March 1
Board of Equalization -- April 15
