A lot of times clients will ask our experienced Media Real Estate Lawyers what can be done if they think their tax bill is higher than normal.

  • You will be required to visit the tax assessor’s office and fill out form for an appeal for a real estate tax assessment.
  • You will be granted a hearing which you will need to have pictures of equitable values or hire an appraiser to assess the property and show that it is over estimated.
  • You will be granted a reduction if your fair market value is below common level ratio at 67.8%.
  • You however can see a rise if you add a pool, addition, or over all improved. But you will have the right to appeal this rise.
