Do taxes go up after revaluation?

If the total levy remains the same, only those properties that are not presently paying their fair share of the tax burden will pay more taxes after a revaluation.  Properties presently paying more than their fair share will pay less.  The purpose of a revaluation is to distribute the tax burden fairly and equitably among the taxable properties in the municipality in accordance with the law.  The purpose is not to increase taxes.  Tax increases are directly related to the budgetary needs of the taxing jurisdictions.
