Property Tax question on new purchase - Htown Tiger
I'm about to close on a house for a value that is quite a bit less than the taxed assessed value. Can I get the tax assessed value lowered to the purchase price? Do I simply just protest the assessed value during the annual protest period, or is there more to it than that?...

re: How do you measure/quantify non-monetary benefits against the dollar? - Htown Tiger

re: NBA/NCAA Betting Thread - Htown Tiger
I've been riding the "fade LSU" thing for a bit, but I haven't decided on this one. Auburn only beat us by 4 earlier in the year at their place. I've seen a number of people on Eastern Michigan today. What's the sell?...

I only ask because if you're coming out of college and your previous work experience is part-time work while in college, I agree...
