Small errors can make a big difference in a property tax amount. To ensure that you receive the most accurate property value, we can guide you through our checklist to:
- Ensure that records are up to date
- Examine the accuracy of the assessor’s information
- Analyze if the tax was figured using the correct taxing authority
- Request copies of the comparable sales information used to value the property
- Compare your property’s assessed value with those of nearby properties
