Consider for a moment a taxing jurisdiction in which thousands of properties of varying types are located. The role of the tax assessor and their professional staff is to establish the taxable value of each property within the confines of their given jurisdiction. In many instances it is very difficult to insure that the assessment of a given property is equitable in relation to other similar properties within the same taxing jurisdiction. The sheer volume alone of properties which need to be evaluated on an annual basis significantly limits the amount of time that can be spent considering the differences of individual properties. This explains why property tax assessor’s rely primarily on mass appraisal techniques. If the foregoing suggests to you an environment in which an over assessment occurs on a regular basis, then you will understand why our Property Tax Appeal and Ad Valorem Tax Services group has consistently delivered significant tax saving for clients since being established over 30 years ago.
