5. If you schedule a protest and have anything reasonable to support your
your case, you have a 50/50 chance of having it changed.

9. Our repug gov. decided quadrennial reassessment wasn't good enough.
He's missing out on all that tax money by only reappraising real property every 4 years.
So he made it ANNUAL!
So our county had to cram 4 years worth of appraisal increases in to one year.
Bastard.
:grr:

8. I see your locals are trying to wring more taxes outta ya.
My sister's new assessment in South Jersey went through the roof. Practically doubled her taxes. They filed a claim protesting their new assessment.

12. When overall valuations go up, often taxes go down.

area were higher.

21. The assessments go down, and yet the taxable values go up.
as an appraiser, I have been urging people to get their homes appraised (and no it's not for my business, because I am sitting out right now) and take it to the city...and then on to the state tribunal. Although, the deadlines have mostly passed for that this year.

17. Go over it with a fine tooth comb and contest it.
Your state has a way to do this, most likely.

18. Screwed up appraiser office?
Back in the 90's in Tampa the TRIM notices went out with about 1/3 going for the wrong properties. I got one for my condo for a property across town worth several times more. A friend's dad, home from heart surgery, got a $250,000 tax bill on his $145,00 home. Seems he got part of TECO's (Tampa Electric) bill.
