Attention Property Owners: Your Property Taxes May Be Too High
Your real estate taxes are based on the tax assessment set by the assessment office for the county in which your property is located. You may appeal your assessment annually, even if the assessment has not changed. Whether your property assessment is fair and accurate is determined by looking at a number of factors but the first question is determining what the county says your property is worth.
When filing a tax assessment appeal, timing is everything. It is important to act now. If you are over-assessed and paying too much in real estate taxes, you will get no relief for 2019 if you do not appeal by the deadline set forth by the county where the property is located. In most counties, that deadline is August 1, 2018.
