Appealing Retail Property Tax Assessment
As the owner of retail property, you become increasingly aware of how the expenses add up for maintaining the property. While many factors are within your control, when the county assessor comes to evaluate your property’s value, it feels like you have no voice in the matter.
Unfortunately, sometimes assessors make mistakes and overvalue your property. When your assessed property value takes an unexpected jump, your taxes can become a more significant burden than you are prepared to handle.
When it is time to appeal the assessment of your property, you need an advocate who understands the process and how to stand up for you. The Law Office of Cathy Steele can help you understand how to move forward to appeal your assessment.
