Contesting County Property Assessments – 60 percent of All Assessed Property is Over-Assessed

Scott Lukes - Tuesday, November 07, 2017
Statistically, 60% of all assessed property is over-assessed, and over half of homeowners who appeal are granted some form of concession. Fewer than 2% of taxpayers appeal, though. Especially if you have property in depressed areas (such as Aurora), you are likely giving free money to your local government.

Tips:
  • Find your county assessor at www.naco.org.
  • Write to your county assessors office and show your assessment is higher that recent comps in your neighborhood (found at www.domania.com and other sites).
  • If possible, have a professional Realtor (such as yours truly) prepare an official assessment… this will hold more weight with the assessor
  • National taxpayers union www.ntu.org has a booklet on how to fight property taxes as well
