Property Tax Valuation Disputes

Property taxes are based on the assessed value of the property you own. It is determined by the governing authority of the county in which the home is located. To determine the value of your house, assessors will perform and review the real estate documents to see how much you paid for it. Your property tax is calculated by multiplying the assessed value by the local tax rate.
There are different reasons why someone would challenge the assessed value of their property. Maybe they found they qualified for exemptions that weren't applied, or realized that their neighbor with similar features was paying less.
Do you think your property is valued too high by your local assessor's office? You can appeal the valuation to your county Board of Revision, but you will need some evidence to back up your appeal.
We can help you challenge your county's valuation. A form appraisal of your property may be the proof needed to strengthen your case to lower your real property tax. Advanced Appraisal Services is certified to produce appraisal reports for residential properties (1-4 unit dwellings), and can supply you with accurate information about your property.
