Property Tax Appeal

Are you concerned that your property assessment may not be accurate?

Are you concerned that your property assessment may not accurately reflect its true value? At Speedy Property Appraisals (SPA), we offer comprehensive appraisal services to help you determine the current estimated market value of your property. This information can be invaluable when appealing your assessment and potentially saving money on property taxes.

Why Consider a Property Tax Appeal?

Property taxes are often based on the assessed value of your home. However, there are instances where the assessed value may not align with the property's actual worth. Factors such as depreciation or market fluctuations could result in an inflated assessment, leading to higher tax obligations. By obtaining an appraisal report, you can present a strong case for appealing your assessment and potentially lowering your property tax burden.

Eight Steps to Appeal Your Property Tax Bill

  1. Know the Rules: Familiarize yourself with the assessment notice and understand the deadline for challenging the value. Be aware of how your locality assesses properties, as the treatment should be consistent across similar homes.

  2. Check for Property Tax Breaks: Review your tax bill to ensure all eligible reductions, credits, freezes, or deferrals are properly applied. Explore potential tax breaks based on your circumstances, such as age, income, or disability, and ensure you have applied for them accordingly.

  3. Verify Your Property's Record: Review your property's official record card, available through your local government's website or assessor's office. Identify any errors or discrepancies that could impact the assessed value.

  4. Compare with Similar Properties: Evaluate the assessments of comparable properties in your neighborhood. Research recent sale prices of similar homes to gauge whether your assessment aligns with market trends.

  5. Gather Evidence: Collect evidence, including data on comparable properties, photographs, blueprints, or repair estimates, to support your case. Highlight any unique features or issues that may affect your property's value.

  6. Present Your Appeal: Submit your appeal and evidence to the assessor for review. If dissatisfied with the initial decision, proceed to the appeals board, presenting your case professionally and persuasively.

  7. Consider a Professional Appraiser: If you prefer expert assistance, enlist the services of a professional appraiser, such as SPA. An experienced appraiser can provide strong evidence of your property's worth, increasing your chances of a successful appeal.

  8. Reap the Rewards: A successful property tax appeal can lead to long-term savings, reducing your tax obligations year after year. Celebrate your victory and enjoy the benefits of a fair assessment.
