Is it Worth It to Appeal Your Property Tax?

YES.

 

You do not have anything to lose by appealing a property tax, but you could save yourself some serious dough. 

There are several ways to appeal your taxes:

1. Check for tax record errors.

2. Demonstrate the market value.

3. Use the assessment ratio.

4. Take note of environmental factors.

I have had home owners do this successfully... it is worth a shot if the value is off the mark.

Ilyce - it is definitely worth it to appeal your property tax!  Before marching in to see the Assessor, though, every homeowner needs to equip him/herself with facts - exactly the same ones you have outlined in your blog.
