Is your property value accurate?
As a real estate owner, you could pay more property taxes when the county tax assessor reassesses your commercial property or home. Attorney Joshua MacNamara can help you verify and appeal the value assessment of your commercial or residential property to help make certain you are paying what you truly owe in property taxes. If you suspect your property tax bill is too high relative to its fair market value, then you may be paying too much in property taxes. We can help look to why…and address this at the county level and appeal the valuation if necessary.
Could you be paying too much in property taxes?
- Overheated / Fluctuating market conditions;
- Inaccurate neighboring property values;
- County Assessor errors (square footage, acreage);
- The County Assessor inaccurately estimated operating expenses unique to your commercial property;
- Incorrect valuations based on property improvements;
- Location variables impacting the fair market value of your property
Resolution of incorrect assessments…
Many property tax issues can be resolved through non-contentious negotiations with the local county assessor and through the Board of Equalization for your county. We navigate the complex property tax appeal process for you by analyzing the multiple factors making up your assessment and help determine if the assessment is accurate relative to the county’s methodology so you are not paying more than you need to.
Allow us to aggressively protect your interests by framing and presenting a realistic valuation of your property to the county so you are paying a property tax bill based on a fair and accurate valuation.
