Tax Appeal Appraisals
There’s a very good chance you’re paying more than your fair share of property taxes! Tax rates based on property values that pre-date the recent downturn in home prices mean that a large percentage of homes in the area are being taxed at outdated rates.
Sometimes, this can be resolved with a phone call to your local taxing authority. But if you still feel like your property has been overvalued, a professional, independent appraiser is your best bet in proving your case.
That’s where Accurity Valuation comes in. There are many different procedures for appealing tax assessments, so it’s important to enlist the help of a professional appraisal company with experience in the appeal process.
It often makes sense to do your own research before moving forward with a property assessment appeal, especially before making the decision to hire a professional appraiser. But according to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), appraisers are not allowed to take “shortcuts” such as using your research as part of our independent evaluation. When you hire us for an assessment appeal, you’re commissioning an independent, third-party to perform a professional appraisal report.
As such, we do our own evaluation from beginning to end. If you’re correct that your property has been overvalued, an independent report such as ours will be more persuasive than any evidence you can provide on your own.
