My home has greatly gone down in value and my property tax is the same. Should it go down as well?

Your assessed value is supposed to be approximately equal to the market value of your home. That said, in counties with % increase caps that held your property at an artificially low assessment in years past, your assessed value could still go up if its still below the "market value".

Is your home assessed for more or less than you could sell it for on the open market today?

In Washington state we have an option to appeal the new property tax assessment when it comes out. Check with your property tax assessor's office and find out if there is an option to appeal your current property tax amount.

most will take a couple of years and reset based upon your county's schedual... with the exception of in CA, most parts of the country dont raise your taxes every single year... look through your old papers for that doc that you got last time your property was reasessed... it will usually have an expiration or something
