Tax Appeal of Real Property

tax-copyReal property tax is a tax based on the value of the property.  Appraisals which are the basis for property values can generally be appealed according to local rules.  Some of the reasons for appealing a tax assessment include:


  • The assessor’s market value estimate is higher than the actual market value.
  • The primary assessment of the property is based on inaccurate information such as an incorrect measurement of a lot or building.
  • The assessment is higher than those of similar neighboring properties.
  • The assessed value is at a higher percentage of market value for your property than the prevailing township, or county median level, as shown in an assessment/sales ratio study.
