In Montclair, there’s plenty of chatter about real estate taxes but divergent opinions. Some of my neighbors embrace their responsibilities, and say they should contribute to our city coffers. Others are pretty much disgusted by all things related to taxes, which they believe flow one-way to the City of Oakland.
So we thought it was time to gauge how Montclarions feel, collectively, about their taxes. Here’s a very short survey for homeowners called: Your Take On Real Estate Taxes.
In this Montclair survey, there are several questions about your attitudes towards homeowner taxes. We’re curious about your feelings regarding parcel and ad valorem taxes. We ask about tax increases, too. And we wonder if your sentiments change as the years pass.
If you’re a local homeowner, then please take this quick survey soon! Thanks very much.

Divergent opinions? I’m not aware of anyone publicly supporting the ad valorem rate, much less the parcel taxes.
Yup, no one loves or supports those taxes but reactions to ’em vary. It will be interesting to see the attitude results from the survey.
Actually, I don’t really care about the Ad Valorem rates. My tax bill is so high, another $67 or whatever it is doesn’t really make a difference. If anything, from a percentage point of view, it brings the people paying a third of what I pay closer.
