5 Reasons To Appeal Your Annual Property Tax Bill
There are many reasons to appeal your property taxes. Especially for those in NY. This applies to both commercial and residential property owners.
Here are just some of them.
1. You Are Being Overcharged
Even if you can afford to far overpay, there are certainly better things to do with this money. Chances are that you are one of the almost 50% of local property owners that are grossly overbilled each year. With the hope that you will just pay the extra, and not question it.
2. You Need To Stay Ahead Of Rising Expenses
You may feel rich and flush with cash today. Though it appears that hyperinflation isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
Your other expenses could be up 30% this year. Including groceries, your utility bills, insurances, and more.
With so many layoffs happening and retirement account values plummeting, your income could be down that much, or be cut off altogether as well.
Create as much cushion in your finances as possible.
3. Create A New Lower Basis
Create a new low base point, so that future tax increases go from there, not an over bloated high.
4. Stand Up For What’s Right
If any other company or individual over charged its customers like this every year, they would be in jail, or have to pay back multi-billion dollar settlements. If no one challenges this, then taxing authorities will just keep on preying on property owners to a greater and greater extent.
5. Preserve The Ability To Sell Your Home
Whether you are even considering selling your property or not, it is essential to preserve the ability to do so. There is just no telling what will happen in life this year.
Property values are already heading down this year. While interest rates are going up. You must keep your property as affordable and attractive for future buyers as possible.
