DON'T ATTEND THIS MEETING IF YOU LIKE PAYING TAXES OR IF YOU HAVE TOO MUCH MONEY...
What County Governments Don't Want You to Know About the Easy Essentials of Saving Big Bucks by Challenging Your Real Estate Taxes
Some say it is your patriotic duty to pay taxes?!?! Regardless of your personal belief, one thing is certain, it is stupid to pay a dime more than you should!
2012 IS A REASSESSMENT YEAR...Every two years, every County Government is required to re-assess the value of every single parcel of real estate in their jurisdication. Some years, assessed values go up...some years, they go down...some years, they stay the same.
What the County won't tell you:
1) Your taxes can (and often do) go up even if your assessed value drops...really? YES IT IS TRUE.
2) Once set, that value is used to determine how much you will pay in real estate taxes for the NEXT TWO YEARS!!
3) You have a legal right to challenge your assessed value...and they won't tell you what to bring and how to win!
YOU CAN LEGALLY REDUCE YOUR REAL ESTATE TAXES if you exercise your legal right to challenge that assessed value AND come armed with the right information, you present it in the correct manner and you make your case. It takes work, but it can be financially beneficial...
