Are Your Real Estate Property Taxes Unfairly High?

With real estate values fluctuating, the unsettled economy, and various impending government bankruptcies, it is not uncommon for local governments to try to raise revenue for municipalities and government agenda through unfair assessment of residential and commercial taxable properties. It is therefore a good idea to immediately take action if you believe that your real estate property taxes are unfair.

A report by USA Today revealed that real estate property taxes have increased by an average of twenty percent since 2006 burdening property owners throughout the country. Another report by the National Taxpayers Union revealed that around thirty to sixty percent of taxable properties in the US are assessed higher than their fair market value. Adding to the already grim situation is the fact that fewer than five percent of these taxpayers take action and file property tax appeals against unfair real estate property taxes.
