What To Bring With You To A Property Tax Attorney
When you schedule an appointment with a property tax attorney, you need to go to his office prepared. If you do not take along all the necessary documents and information, your first visit may be a waste of time and money causing a return trip with added fees. When you call the property tax attorney, you need to give your full name, property address as well as how to contact you if needed. Being prepared is very important when dealing with any tax information.
The Stages Of A Property Tax Appeal Process
There are several steps for the property tax appeal process. The first step is to determine if you are receiving a higher assessment than what you believe the property could sell for in this period. If you feel the assessed value is high, you can then take the first step towards appealing the tax bill. If you do not succeed on the first level, you have two other levels to appeal to before taking the final step in a courtroom.
What Is A Property Tax Consultant
Property tax consultants are similar to property tax attorneys except they have no special law degree, but do work to achieve results. You can use a property tax consultant to reduce or protect your taxes on a property. They can help you with filing the paperwork for an appeal, help you find all the necessary documentation and they will attend all the hearings with you. Most of the property tax consultant company's have their own qualified appraisers. The consultants have valuable resources for obtaining needed information before entering any property tax hearing so you are prepared.
