Property Tax Appeal Help Day #3

Assessment Appeal Help Day # 3

Mark your calendars for Saturday January 7, 2012.  The Citizens of Delaware County for Good Government is hosting our third Annual “Property Tax Appeal Help Day” at the Kennedy Branch Library, 1700 W. McGalliard Road.  The Seminar starts promptly at 10:00 am, followed by questions and answers, and personalized help sessions.

Last year’s Help Day was a huge hit as we helped hundreds of property taxpayers find errors on their assessments and prepare property assessment appeals.

The deadline to file your appeals is January 20, 2012.  If you file late you will lose your right to appeal for the current tax year.  You may need to appeal your assessment this year, even if you appealed last year and won.  The purpose of the Help Day is to help Delaware County property owners who believe that their property tax assessment is too high.   We will provide pointers on how to create a successful appeal, and will help you complete your property tax assessment appeal forms, but we cannot guarantee that you will win your appeal.  There is no charge for this service.

 It is very important that you bring a current property record card so that we can identify errors on your assessment.  You should also bring photos of your home at angles that show the front, side, and rear elevations.  You should also provide photos of any yard buildings, pools, or other improvements to the property, plus photographs and documentation of any damages or other issues that detract from the value of the property. Make two copies of your appeal and all supporting documentation and have them date stamped when you turn in your appeal, keeping one copy for your records.

 Scott Alexander, 2012 President of the Citizens of Delaware County for Good Government.

    yes, our property tax bills may have some errors. So we must check it. Another important thing is that we must evaluate our property annually. As property rates are not fixed they are changing . And if you found that you are overpaying then you must appeal against your property tax bills.

    Thanks for sharing
