Property Tax Learning Center
Property tax is a tax assessed on real estate based on the property value.
If you have a mortgage your property taxes are most likely included in you monthly mortgage payment. If you do not have a mortgage it is your responsibility to pay your property taxes directly to your local assessors office. Property tax due dates vary by location.
Property taxes are used to help civic infrastructure. They help pay for things like road construction, fire and police departments.
Your property tax amount is determined by the assessed value of your real estate. You are then charged a fixed percent of the value of the property. For example if your home’s value was assessed at $100,000 and your local property tax rate was 1.5%, your property taxes would be $1,500 annually.
Nobody is right 100% of the time, and the tax assessors are not an exception to this! Often times property values are over assessed. Meaning the assessor’s office has over estimated the value of your home. The reasons for this vary from human error to a change in property value caused by damage or changes in the real estate market. This is when an appeal is used. An appeal is a statement of contest, accompanied with evidence backing your claim.
