Free Property Tax Appeal Help
When you get your property tax assessment in the mailbox, likely, you assume it’s correct. Right? The authorities are always right!
Of course NOT! Professionals tell us there is a good 50/50 chance real errors exist.
The National Taxpayers Union writes that as many as 60% of all homeowners are over-assessed and not in line with their home value. (“How To Fight Property Taxes” 2004 p.1)
Consumer Reports has published that property tax records show an error rate of 40% exists in estimating property taxes. (Nov.1992 v57 nil p.723)
48% Of All NJ Homeowners are Over-Assessed – reported in: easytaxfix.com/pdf/2012%20NJ%20Over-assessment%20White%20Paper.pdf (data obtained from the MOD4 and SR1A files maintained by New Jersey County Assessors).
Do you think that these over-assessment patterns might exist in other states?
