As home values increase across the country, so are property taxes. If you find that your tax is higher than you feel is reasonable, don’t just sit quiet. Say something about it. In most areas, you have between 30 and 90 days after you receive notice of a new assessment to appeal. This is actually something you can do yourself. However, if you aren’t sure if you can handle an appeal on your own, you should seek out the help of a lawyer who does cover property tax appeals. Because the process may actually be easier than you think, you are encouraged to see what you can do on your own first.
