Commercial Property Tax Appeal
Our Full-Service Property Tax Appeal Process
If you disagree with your property assessment, § 70.47 grants you the right to appeal. Challenging the property assessments can be a time-consuming process, during which you must make multiple appearances, meet important deadlines, and submit legal paperwork.
Should You Appeal Your Property Tax Assessment?
By contesting your assessment, you can enjoy a lower property tax. However, this can be a laborious process, warns Consumer Affairs: “To appeal the assessed value and related property tax, prepare yourself for a tough row. You may even have to appeal an initial rejection....Even if the process is free if you go it alone, you may need the help of a real estate agent, realty attorney or other licensed
professional to assist you gathering some of the evidence you'll need to make your case.”
We Handle the Entire Appeals Process for You
Step 1: We Review Your Property Assessment
We begin by creating a record for your property in our Assessment Tracking Database where all of the necessary information is entered and analyzed. Our database calculates an estimated value based on Acceptable Appraisal Practice and Market Parameters, which are updated regularly to ensure value integrity. We analyze the information and compare your assessed value to our value conclusion.
Step 2: We Create a Valuation Report
If our value conclusion is lower than the assessed value by an unreasonable amount, we will automatically start the appeal by creating a Valuation Report.
Step 3: We Represent You in Meetings and at Hearings
We do all the work for you; from creating the report to contacting the assessing authorities.
We will appear at all meetings, hearings, and board of review proceedings on your behalf.
We will also work with you through the legal process, if necessary.
Step 4: We Can Monitor Your Assessed Value Yearly
We can monitor values annually to ensure the value of your property is always correct.
Step 5: We Update You Regularly
We can provide status reports for all of your properties as appeals progress, and annually for properties that aren't currently being appealed.
