In the summer of 2017, property tax assessments and assessment appeals were a big topic of discussion. That is because 2017 marked the countywide reassessment for all properties. The County Tax Assessment Appeal Board heard tens of thousands of assessment appeals. Some of the appeals resulted in substantial savings for the property owners.
This blog article is a reminder that even if you did not appeal your property tax assessment in 2017, you can still appeal that assessment in 2018. Appeals must be filed on or before August 1, 2018.
Here are a few of the topics that this blog covered in 2017:
- So I Received My Preliminary Property Assessment Notice. Now What?
- To Appeal, or not to Appeal – That is the question after you receive your property reassessment.
- Commercial and Industrial Property Assessment Appeals
If you did not appeal your assessment in 2017, but you think that your assessment is wrong, you have another chance to reduce your property taxes. If you wonder whether you should appeal, we would be happy to help.
