Challenging Your Property Tax Assessment?

It's that time of year, your property tax assessments are arriving in the mail. Are you checking your assessment to make sure that it's accurate in today's market? If you feel that your assessment is too high there are some simple steps that you can take to challenge your assessment with your municipality.
- Compare your records to the assessor's records. Speak with the assessor, many times errors of fact can be corrected automatically without board review.
- If you are required to present to the review board, make sure you understand which properties the assessor used to determine your properties value, then find recent sales of properties similar to yours.
- For additional help, you may also consider hiring a licensed appraiser.
