Ive heard from so many taxpayers say that they’re overpaying property taxes and the Assessor’s Office doesnt care! Homeowners feel the injustice constantly because they know their assessed values are higher than their current market values. Frequently when dealing with the Assessor’s Office and asking for assistance it appears that none is offered because of the nature of the issue. The first thing for every homeowners to realize is that the help the Office of the Assessor can offer is limited and with this real estate market right now they are inundated with frustrated homeowners. During this recession, during this real estate market everyone has gotten slammed with bad news and everyone is tightening up and lashing out where they can, given the general atmosphere today.
Many taxpayers are stressed out about their property taxes and assessments, relax and take a deep breath; the good news is that there is hope for lowering your assessment especially in this real estate market. The key to reducing your property taxes as much as possible is: understanding. Knowing the critical and relevant data necessary to reduce your assessed value, you will make sure you are paying as little as possible!
The Assessor’s Office doesnt seem to care because they are inundated with work and inundated with angry, frustrated, yelling homeowners. The Assessor doesnt have the enough man power to care. Dont take it personally, the Assessor is NOT out to get you. The Office of the Assessor will assist you as much as they can. Understand that with the quantity of work there is not the time to deal with your feelings as well as break down the laws, exemptions, statutes that are relevant to your specific assessed value.
You need to be the one to take charge, because no one knows your residence and your real estate market value better than you do. The only data you are missing to reduce your property taxes is what knowledge pertaining to your house is relevant specifically to lower your property taxes. If you have the knowledge needed to lower your property taxes and you hand that information to the Assessor Im confident your property taxes will be lowered! When you take control, you help yourself and you also help help Office of the Assessor assist you! They key to reducing your property taxes is to understand the process and know what information is necessary to provide to the Assessor. The process is much simpler than you think.
Many property owners I have spoken to do not want to touch their assessments with a ten foot pole! There is nothing to be afraid of. Property Tax law in each state, including California (where we like to make things difficult), is very simple. They key is understanding three aspects of your property taxes: property tax law, appraisal and assessment practice. Take it from the property tax expert who worked in all sides of the process and spent years being educated on it. It is easy. Property taxes are easy. The keys to reducing your property taxes are in your hand, time to put them in ignition, turn on the car and drive.
