No one likes their property values falling, much less being under water on the mortgage. That is not what we hoped for when we bought the property – whether our home or an investment property. I have hundreds of past clients, though, who have succeeded in a property tax appeal, and the county has dropped their property tax bill as a result.
I have been asked to coach clients in how to approach a property tax appeal. This is not my area of expertise, so all I have been able to offer are cursory thoughts and anecdotes of those people who have done it. Helpful, but not really what I am being asked.
And, there are people who offer to appeal your property tax bill for you, for a fee. They are experienced in doing so, of course, and they probably know the people who work in the tax assessor’s offices on a first name basis. But, do you need to go to that expense? I would conclude that you do not.
So to gain the necessary confidence to appeal your property taxes yourself, and to make sure that you have done your homework and are well prepared and professional about your appeal, I have found and reviewed this resource: Property Tax Appeal. It costs a few bucks, but I think you will find it is worth it; and the ROI will be astronomical if you end up saving several hundred dollars a year on your taxes.
So, I am happy to be able to bring you this resource. I look forward to hearing your feedback on it when you put it to use and save money on your home.
