Thinking that maybe you are paying more than your share of Property Tax?
Marin county property owners can apply for re-assessment of their property tax annually for a slight relief.
The filing period is July 2 through November 1, 2010.
This is to request an informal review of the assessment of your property if you feel that the market value of your home is less than the assessed value as of January 1, 2010. If approved by the county, your property tax for the coming year will be lower based on the lower assessed property value - note that this will be a temporary reduction.
You will need to provide the county with three properties that sold close to January 1, 2010 and no later than March 31, 2010. You will then be able to provide your opinion on the value of your home based on the properties selected.
Please click oh the link for the Marin County Property Informal Assessment Review Request Form.
The form has to be postmarked before 4PM, November 1, 2010 to be accepted.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need assistance to fill out the form.
Every little bit help counts!
