Property Taxes: Tax Tribunal part 3

What Do You Do When The Board Of Review Says “NO!”?

Here are a couple Pointers:

  1. In my experience the Board of Review almost shoots you down, but the appeal process at the State Tax Tribunal has a reasonable non-bias person there to look at your appeal – GO TO the Tax Tribunal!
  2. Don’t be scared, these are real people there to hear your case!
  3. Be Prepared
  4. Cost FREE if its your primary residence, non-homestead fee is $125
  5. Petition Form (appeal only assessed value)
  6. 35 days after you file you should receive a docket number
  7. 25 days later response from municipality saying they received
  8. Be Prepared to wait for a hearing date! They are are backed up 1.5 – 2 years
  9. Local hearing where both you and the assessor present evidence (same basic thing you brought to the board of review)
  10. 21 days prior to the hearing you will submit your evidence or a packet showing why you are appealing
  11. You will also recive the municipalities evidance so you can review and dispute at hearing
  12. About 45 days after hearing you get the ruling.

Buying and Financing Rental Property 2022 Event

July 2022 Lunch & Learn Event and Webinar for Realtors and Investors

Working with home buyers searching for a new primary residence is a totally different game compared to working with investors and rental property.  Sure, there are similarities, but what want-to-be home owners care about is different than what an investor cares about.  Frankly, for an investor, it’s all about the money and it should be.  When someone purchases a rental property they are essentially running a business.  If we can help them run a successful business and turn a profit they will likely come back and buy more properties.

There are lots of want-to-be investors out there and the hardest part is getting started.  We are going to help unravel the maze.  We will also look at long term planning.  Often just knowing what needs to happen to acquire the next property and the next one after that is one of the keys to success.  Owning rental property can be a great way to build wealth and we are here to help.
