Property Tax Appeal
Do you believe you are overpaying for your property taxes? Has your house been overvalued? Inaccurate residential assessments are a growing challenge and problem in Cobb County. The best way to keep your house from being over-assessed is by obtaining an appraisal from an experienced, state-certified appraiser from Cobb County Property Appraisers.
Your property assessment is a percentage of the market value of your property. This is what your local taxing authorities use to determine the amount of real estate taxes based on their taxes. You can challenge a tax assessment based on the accuracy of the work conducted by the assessor. Anything from the square footage, condition of the property, and property features can determine your tax assessment. If the square footage on your property is wrong, it is most likely that your tax assessor has overvalued your property. Simple data errors may result in an over-assessment, which happens more than most people realize. For tax purposes, the county assessor’s office base property values on recent sales of similar properties. In areas such as historic districts, or in neighborhoods described as having properties where size, quality, and condition vary greatly, it is often difficult to collect accurate information used to compare properties that have recently sold than with those that have not. Here at Cobb County Property Appraiser, we strive to provide you with an accurate valuation of your property.
According to a report from the National Taxpayers Union, assessors have overvalued 60% of the homes in the United States. The value that assessors have given these homes is often far out of line with what the homes’ actual values are. All property owners have the right to appeal their current assessments each year if they believe their property has been overvalued. A successful appeal may effectively lower your annual property tax bill for up to three years.
