As an example, a residence with a market value of $50,000 would be assessed at 19%, which would place its assessed value at $9,500.
If you do not agree with your assessment, there are 3 steps you can take in the appeal process. Remember that an assessment is based on current market value and our objective here is to establish the correct market value of the property. Stating that property taxes are too high is not relevant testimony. You should determine what you believe to be the value of your property and gather and present evidence that supports that value. Such evidence could include photographs, the recent sale of your property, or the oral testimony of someone who has done a recent appraisal of your property.
