And I'm in Prop-13-land, where your assessed value starts at your purchase price and can go up by no more than 2% each year.

BUT - it *can* go down below your purchase price (prop. 8)

And really the County Assessor still does a FMV valuation. They have to for prop 8 purposes. However, the amount you are taxed on - the "factored base year value" is only going up by 2%.
