Did you know that homeowners can appeal the amount of property tax they have to pay? If you can provide evidence that your property’s value is less than the town thinks, they may lower your tax amount. This could be a good time to appeal due to the recent market shakeups and governmental efforts to help homeowners and stabilize markets.
You could be saving hundreds to thousands of dollars each year if your appeal is successful.
💡 Tips & How We Can Help
- Check your property’s information in the county’s tax record for inaccuracies (i.e. Does it say 4 acres when you only own 0.4 acres?). We can help you get this information.
- Gather recent sales of homes that are comparable to yours to prove your home’s value. With our MLS access and hyperlocal expertise, we can help pull accurate comps for you.
- Ask the town to review your info and issue a decision. Each town has a specific procedure (forms, deadlines, etc.). The deadline here was extended to May 1st, so hurry and act now!
