Spring is right around the corner, and you know what that means: Tax Season. If you haven't gotten it already, the county will be sending out a property tax assessment for the property you own. They will tell you how much they think the property is worth, so they can tax you accordingly.
Is this the same thing as an appraisal? No. An appraisal is done by the bank, and is more in-depth than an assessment. With an appraisal, you want to get the highest figure possible to increase the value of your home.
For a property tax assessment, you want the number to be as low as possible, so you don't have to pay as much in taxes. The reality is that these assessments are often inaccurate, and you might be getting taxed more than you should be.
If you think your property tax assessment is wrong, whether it's too high or too low, give us a call. We can help you go through your options, which include filing an objection against the county's assessment. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
