Are you paying more than your fair share of property taxes!
Sometimes, matters like this can be resolved with a phone call. However, if after discussing your assessment with your local taxing authority you still feel as though your property has been overvalued, a professional, independent, third-party appraiser is often your best bet in proving your case.
That’s where Appraisals of Southwest Florida can help. There are a lot of different procedures for appealing tax assessments, so it’s important to enlist the help of a professional appraisal company that’s experienced and trained in the ins and outs of the appeal process.
Prior to hiring an appraiser, it often makes sense to do your own research before determining whether to move forward with a property assessment appeal, especially before making the decision of hiring a professional appraiser.
Keep in mind, according to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), we as appraisers are not allowed to take “shortcuts” — i.e., your research – and use it as face value as part of our independent evaluation. When you hire us for an assessment appeal, you’re commissioning us as an independent, third-party to perform a professional appraisal report.
As such, we do our own evaluation from beginning to end. If you’re correct that your property has been overvalued, an independent report such as ours will be more persuasive than any other evidence you can provide.
