Experts estimate that as much as 60% of taxable property in the U.S. is over assessed. Each homeowner is potentially throwing away thousands of dollars unnecessarily on an annualized basis.
With the recent decline in real estate prices, there is a good chance that your property is over assessed and your property tax bill is higher than it should be.
It’s true. Almost every community across the United States has been affected by the dramatic decline in real estate prices over last few years. Some properties may have lost up to half their value! Even after massive property value declines, many homeowners are still paying taxes on the assessed value of their property before the price decline.
With every year that goes by, there is usually a certain window of time for you to file an appeal. If you file your appeal this year and win, it will affect the taxes for the following year. So if you wait until next year to file, you will not realize any adjustments until 2 years from now. So why wait?
Hundreds of thousands of homeowners nationwide are successfully appealing their property taxes. We have developed this course to teach homeowners how to appeal their property taxes on their own and in the process potentially save thousands of additional dollars a year.
The truth is, your municipal taxing authority is not going to notify you to let you know that you are paying more than you should be. They will gladly accept the extra revenue. Since many municipalities across the country have no incentive to reassess at this time, it has never been a better time to appeal your property tax assessment.
It is up to the homeowner to determine if their property is over assessed and file a property tax appeal in order to lower their annual tax liability. In fact, you are entitled by law to file an appeal if you feel that your property is over assessed, but there are a few things you should know before you file your appeal in order to increase your chances for success.
That’s right! Armed with the right knowledge and with the right action plan, you can easily complete the whole appeal process on your own. There is certainly no shortage of attorneys or tax professionals that would like to take your money to walk you through the tax appeal process, but why pay those fees when you can just do it on your own? Most professional services will commonly charge 30 to 50% of your first year’s tax savings. That means that if you are able to lower your annual tax bill by $4000 after a successful appeal, you would have to pay them $2000 at the time of determination. You would need to come up with an additional $2000 this year in order to start saving money next year.
In fact, the process is really quite simple…
- Learn some simple concepts so that you fully understand all of the factors involved with filing a property tax appeal.
- Evaluate your situation, find out how to accurately determine if your property is over assessed and what your potential savings could be.
- Prepare all of the necessary documentation you will need to prove your case.
- File your property tax appeal with your municipal taxing authority and wait for correspondence.
- Attend the hearing and present your case to your hearing officer or appeals board.
