Also, if you do not think the City is playing fair, contact channel 7 on your side and ask them to help.

Of course you should still fight it, I'm just saying maybe it's not as bad as you think?!?
First before you start to believe that "the City" is out to get you, understand that the people behind the counter are just doing thier job. They don't "know" the value of your house anymore than anyone else. All marketing analysis and appraisals are opinions of the current value. Market analysis determiines a "possible" sale price if the property is placed on the market in saleable condition. An appraisal determines a "likely" sale price in it's current condition. Both are the best opinions of professionals based on recent past sales.
The tax office is attempting to do the same thing, establish the tax base on your property by comparing past sales.
What you need to do is build your case why you were able to pay the market price you paid and why THAT is the value. If you can't convince the assessors office of the value you can appeal it to the tax appeals board. Be sure you get a good understanding of how the assessors office came up with thier number because the most important thing you can do is use thier numbers and prove them wrong.
Also not to be critical but your English is not clear so I'd recommend the use of a translator when dealing with officialdom.
