You open your mailbox to a letter from your county appraisal district. You cringe. It’s that dreaded property tax assessment that will cost you thousands upon thousands of your hard-earned dollars.
Upon peeling back the envelope, you’re hit with a wave of shock. It’s thousands of dollars higher than last year’s assessment. You can’t afford that. You haven’t saved enough. What can you do?
1. You question it.
How much higher is it than last year’s? Is it higher than your neighbors’ assessments? Is it way off from the price you bought the home at? How about in comparison to what others in the area are selling their homes for? If anything seems amiss, it’s time to investigate. In today’s competitive market, overly high assessments are all too common, so if you think something’s off—it probably is.
