I would like to respond to Howard Pinkey Plyler’s letter, “Don’t forget reassessment vote in 2005,” in the June 4 edition of The Lancaster News.
In 2005, the S.C. Legislature voted in Act 388, which would cap property values at 15 percent for four years.
Until 2005, we had not had a reassessment since 1999 in Lancaster County.
The property values in some parts of the county were on the books at less than half their actual value.
The property owners would have loved to had their property values capped at this amount.
