Recipients of 'Extreme Makeover' have extreme bill


MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota family that was given a new 5,200-square-foot home as part of the ABC show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" has an extreme property tax bill to go with it.

The bill for Bill and Adair Grommesh's new home in Moorhead will eventually be $5,400 a year, following a two-year tax abatement for home improvements. The taxes on their old home with 1,100 square feet was about $1,500.
