Rob of the Say Anything blog based in North Dakota, where he told how he booted the Minot city tax assessor off his property:

So I asked my wife to put me on the phone with the gentleman from the City of Minot.  He got on the phone and said that he wanted to check through my house to see if my property taxes needed to be raised. I told him I wasn’t comfortable with him going through my house, and asked him why the City of Minot needs more property taxes. After all, didn’t we just get $300 million in property tax relief from the state legislature?

He told me that the state has actually been cutting spending (we’ve had a 54 percent increase in general fund spending over the last four years!) and that’s why the city needs to tax more/spend more.

My response to him was to say that he could remove himself from my property and assess my home’s value from the street.
