7 Basic Steps To Appealing Your Property Taxes

  1. When you’re considering buying a house, the first thing to do is to determine if the property’s assessed value might be too high. You can find this information by looking up your county assessor on Google. 
  2. Don’t forget about the assessor when looking at properties that might be over-assessed. They may still have some sympathy for your situation and offer to reduce their estimate based on what they’ve seen so far.
  3. You can appeal the property tax assessment if it appears that your home is over-assessed, and you will not be getting a fair shake from the assessor.
  4. Get the property appraised. You can find out what kind of house it is and how much it is worth by looking up databases or asking around town, but make sure that any information received from these sources has been confirmed and professionally presented.
  5. Attend the hearing and make your case professionally.
  6. You have to wait for the results of this hearing before taking any action.
  7. Consider filing an appeal if the results of your case are not what you want.
