A property tax appeal is the formal process of requesting from the county, a reduction of your property taxes.
It is possible to trim your property tax bill by appealing the value assigned to your home. That “assessed value” is what’s used to calculate how much tax you owe. One way to lower your property tax is to show that your home is worth less than its assessed value.
Most successful appeals begin by undergoing an independent appraisal on the property to determine if the locality’s tax assessment was too high.
The Real Estate Tax Assessments are calculated annually. Each year property owners will receive an Assessment Letter in the mail. The County will publish those Assessments in the newspapers. You have 30 days from the date the new assessments are published in the newspaper to file a Tax Assessment Appeal.
