Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. Should we sign up for a Property Tax Appeal?
A. Circumstances are different for each homeowner. If you know your home is over assessed then the answer is yes. If you are not sure if your are over assessed, we can help you look into it.


Q. If we win the appeal, when will I see my savings?
A. In some cases you may see it in the forth quarter of the appeal, but in all cases, no later then following tax year.


Q. Will my assessment go up if we are denied?
A. If our appraiser determines that your property is under assessed we will advise you of that before proceeding to a hearing.


Q. How long is the savings period?
A. One of the advantages of filing a tax appeal is that even if the county commissioner determines that your assessment is correct and there is no reduction, your current assessment will be frozen for a period of 3 years. Of course if your assessment is lowered, it will remain lowered for that same 3 year period.


Q. How much do I owe if we lose or drop the appeal?
A. On a contingency fee plan, you owe nothing if we are not successful. However, the county will not refund your filing fee.
