How To Lower Property Tax ?  

If you own a house, you need to pay property tax no matter where the house is located. Each state has its own rates of property tax, depending on the cost of the land and any development made on it. Generally, a state charges at an average of 1 to 2 percent. It may be higher in some places if the value of the house is more.

An owner of the property is expected to pay tax as long as he is the owner. The best practice to have your property tax trimmed is to get it surveyed each year on the basis of current market sales. It may happen that in some areas the value of the property has depreciated due to fall in the market. It is a must for owners to get their property re-assessed each year but one has to keep in mind that it should be done within sixty days of receiving the property tax bill.

It is not that simple to keep a track of this entire process. If you have more than one property so, to ensure that you are not missing out this important aspect, you can take the help of a real estate expert who would be charging you some nominal rates to help you find out the current value of your property. The experts normally compare the sales price of homes that are identical in your neighborhood like similar plot size and other related aspects. At least two reports should be prepared clearly stating the rates at which the homes have been sold in the recent times and what is the difference it has made as compared to the previous year. In case of a property is being sold at a lesser price than the current market trend due to some extreme cases such as divorce, death or any other financial constraints, it should be clearly stated. After completing all the necessary statements as required by the tax assessor’s office, one can have some relief that his property has been correctly assessed.
