Letter: Tax abatements hurt real estate taxes

I never liked tax abatement. It seems so unfair. I feel if you own real estate, you should be responsible for it.

I own two properties in the city and two properties outside the city. I pay a large amount of real estate tax. I received a letter the other day from the Allen County Auditor’s Office explaining the reevaluation of my property. It stated it was not to raise or lower my taxes. This will be on my tax bill in 2022.

I wasn’t born yesterday. Someone has to cover the county’s loss of moneys because of the tax abatements.
