Yes, you can! If you feel like your Real Estate taxes are too high, you can petition to lower them. Some people either buy a house lower than the current assessed value, or for some reason are paying a substantial amount higher than neighbors with similar houses to theirs. Lots of things can effect the assessed value like size, purchase price, location, number of bedrooms/ bathrooms or just house sales in your neighborhood. The County Board of Review is made up of three board members to look over every appeal. They meet after the appeals window has closed to look over the appeals. The appeal window for 2017 is from 1st of July to the 10th of September. The link to the appeal form is below. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions or need help filling out the appeal form out.
