The time of year to protest your property taxes is upon us again. Remember, you should protest your property taxes every year whether or not your assessed value increases, decreases or stays the same. If you do not protest them every year, the taxing authority can raise your assessed value by up to 30% in a single year going back three years if you did not protest any of those three years (10% per year increase for every year a protest was not registered and your assessment was not increased). Why protest every year?...Even if your protest is unsuccessful, it counts as measure against a dramatic future increase.
You can protest your taxes online, in person or by hiring someone to do it for you. The people I suggest to do it for you this year are AppealPropertyTax.com . This company charges you 33% of the savings and only if they are successful in reducing your assessment. Other companies charge up to 50% of the savings so this is a pretty good deal. Don't wait long; the deadline to protest is May 31.
If you plan to protest yourself, I am happy to provide comparable sales in your area to help you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, comments or would like some help.
