Assessment appeal services
Most localities determine your property tax burden based on an ad valorem assessment of the property's value. Sometimes, as a property owner, you get an unwanted surprise in the mail telling you your taxes are going up, and sometimes it may seem as though your assessment is too high.
Often, matters like this can be resolved with a phone call. However, if after discussing your assessment with your local taxing authority you still feel as though your property was overvalued, a professional, independent, third-party, licensed appraiser expert is often your best bet in proving your case. That's where the independent Experts affiliated with We Value America LLC come in.
There are as many different procedures for appealing assessments as there are property taxing districts, so it's important to enlist the help of a highly qualified, local professional appraisal firm that's experienced and trained in the ins and outs of your particular jurisdiction.
Please note: It makes sense to do your own research before determining whether to go forward with a property assessment appeal, especially before you make the decision to hire a professional appraiser. However, according to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), licensed appraisers are not allowed to take "shortcuts" -- i.e., your research -- and use it on its face as part of our independent evaluation. When you hire any appraiser expert for an assessment appeal, you're commissioning an independent, third-party professional appraisal report. As such we do our own evaluation, beginning to end. If you're right that your property has been overvalued, an independent report from a qualified expert will be even more persuasive than any other evidence you can marshal on your own. But it depends on the skill level and experience of the local expert you select.
Sometimes, you will have a hearing on your assessment appeal and will need for the appraiser you've hired to testify on your behalf as an independent expert. Be assured that independent experts affiliated with We Value America, LLC, are able to professionally and persuasively testify at appeal hearings.
