Property Tax Appeals FAQ
Do you have questions about filing a property tax appeal? Here are some common questions and their answers from our skilled realty team.
Why would I need to file property tax appeals?
The assessment office is often overworked or understaffed. It’s easy for assessors to make mistakes when assessing thousands of properties each year. Your property or neighborhood may have unique conditions that affect its value that the tax assessor cannot know. Filing a property tax appeal allows you to request that the assessor take a closer look at your property’s value using the data you provide. Some common reasons to appeal include lack of uniformity, market changes, or a recent purchase.
How can a real estate firm help with property tax appeals?
Property tax appeals often require some measure of negotiation. They also require local market knowledge. A real estate firm with experience handling real estate tax appeals can help you get a fair response to your appeal and, ultimately, save you money.
When can I appeal a tax assessment?
As soon as you receive your notice of valuation change from the tax assessor’s office, you can appeal. Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, all have their own rules and regulations about when these appeals must be filed, so working with a qualified real estate firm will ensure you get the appeal in on time.
