Property Tax Appeal
When markets are are declining or volatile, often assessed values lag behind current market values. Most counties, cities and school districts determine your property tax burden based on an ad valor em assessment of the property's value. Sometimes, as a property owner, you get an unwanted surprise in the mail telling you your taxes are going up, and sometimes it may seem as though your assessment is too high.
Although matters like this can sometimes be resolved by the property owner, if after discussing your assessment with your local taxing authority you still feel as though your property was overvalued, a professional, independent, third-party appraiser is often your best bet in proving your case. Appraisal Source, Inc. has prepared many appraisals for the purpose of appealing property tax assessments.
