Property Tax Appeals: When, How, & Why to Submit

Property taxes are a significant expense, and every property owner or commercial tenant should pay attention to their assessment as everyone has to make a fair tax contribution. A review of your assessment can dramatically change your property tax position by adjusting your tax contribution. If you see that your assessment suddenly goes up or you don’t agree with the assessment value of the property, you can appeal the assessment based on appropriate evidence.

Given that the assessment notices are published on January 1st of each year and for your appeal to be considered, you have to submit your paper work by January 31st. We have found that it is often in the owner’s best interest to engage with Sidco Property regarding your valuation.
