So what is a Tax Grievance?
Every property is assigned a value by the taxing authority for tax purposes. This value is the assessment. This is what your town believes your assessment should be based on the information they have on the property and in relation to other properties in your area. This is why you choose comparables within a given area, to maintain characteristics similar to yours. However, their assessment may or may not be accurate. This is why your file a grievance, to insure your assessment is correct and that you are paying your fair share of property taxes.
Most homeowners believe if their current market value is below the town value, their assessment is ok. But, what you should be looking for is equality. Is your property assessed at the same rate as your neighbors? If enough of the properties are assessed lower than yours, you may have a case for a reduced assessment.
Additionally, the only true measure of value is what a buyer is willing to pay based on an arms-length transaction, meaning a sale without duress. If you’re selling your property, you need to know if you are over assessed and could mean a lost sale. Why? Because an over assessed home could cost the buyer hundreds more each month then the similar home for sale across the street. Buyers also want to know this because if taxes are too high, it can put a buyer over their budget.
The bottom line is that you owe it to yourself to get your Tax and Value report. Even if you do nothing more that use this report to give you an idea of your current market value verses what your town is claiming.
