How to Reduce Your Property Taxes
How can you reduce your property taxes? There are a couple of easy ways to do this.
The first way is to make sure you are receiving all the exemptions you qualify for. There are many that could apply to you.
The second way is to speak to an attorney about appealing your taxes. If you look around your neighborhood and think “I may be paying too much,” ask your Realtor about this. A Realtor will take a look, and if we get the idea that you may be overpaying on your taxes, then we’ll take that to an attorney who specializes in appealing taxes and ask them to take a look at your case.
The attorney will usually do an initial evaluation and determine whether you’re paying too much. If you are overpaying, then ordinarily that attorney will handle all the paperwork and processes for you. They will take it to the county assessor, and they should get your property taxes reduced. Often, you won’t owe them anything unless it’s a successful appeal. But how you pay will depend on that specific attorney.
