Yep I know the PVA election is one of the boring ones but it also is one of the most important. PVA candidate Corey Koellner had this to say about the Ford tax decision.
Louisville, KY - The Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals ruled against the Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator yesterday, citing "flawed" information in their attempt to increase the assessed value of Ford Motor Company's Kentucky Truck Plant. The Jefferson County PVA was attempting to increase the value of Ford's property by over $30 million.
Corey Koellner, a candidate for Jefferson County PVA, responded to this ruling by saying, "I agree with and applaud the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals ruling. Inflated property values are not only bad for working families, they are bad for business - which means local jobs. As a city, we will never reach our full potential in job attraction and creation with a reputation for 'sticking it' to our employers. It seems our current PVA is more concerned with managing the city's revenue stream than the fair treatment of Jefferson County property owners."
The Koellner campaign has been advocating for the fair treatment of all individuals by the Jefferson County PVA office. Koellner, a Certified Internal Auditor, intends to use his accounting background and professional experience dealing with valuation-related issues to bring a more informed presence to the office.
