Earlier this year, tens of thousands of Jackson County property owners learned the assessed value of their property increased at a rate that caught many off guard.

While the auditor’s office was able to launch an initial inquiry into the process after receiving feedback from residents, it wasn’t until the Jackson County Legislature requested an audit that Fitzpatrick’s team was able to begin a formal audit.

Fitzpatrick’s office says the audit, which his team started in September, is ongoing.
