Every state has their own laws and rules regarding property tax.
You are required to know when your property taxes are due so that you can pay on time and avoid any complications.
However, if you feel that your property’s assessment isn’t correct, have the right to file an appeal.
If you don’t agree with the assessed value of your property, you bear the burden of proof.
If you want to file an appeal, you will need to have complete documentation when you meet with an attorney.
Your first appointment with your attorney will be an assessment of your situation. You may decide that a phone interview best meets your needs, but if you can arrange the appointment in person you may find it best.
If you are concerned about the cost of the attorney’s service, ask if the attorney works on a contingency fee basis.
