How Do I Dispute My Utah Property Taxes?
Right around the end of July, beginning of August, you will receive your property tax statement in the mail. If you’re interested in saving a little money on those, you’ll want to watch to our video.
Your property tax statement will come from the county or city assessor’s office. On this statement, you’ll see a property evaluation telling you the estimated value of your home. This is what the county thinks your home is worth, and you pay taxes based on this estimated value, so you want to be sure that it is correct.
Now, sometimes the county assessor overestimates your value. For example, let’s say that your home has been estimated at 300K, but you know that homes in your area have been selling for 250K. If this was the case, you’d want to dispute your property because otherwise you’d be paying taxes on 50K worth of home equity that isn’t really there.
So how do you go about disputing it? Well, that’s where we come in! You call us, your trusted real estate professionals, and we’ll be happy to pull up other recently-sold homes from your area that are comparable to your home. We’ll print them out and get them to you, so you have the right documentation and can prove to the county assessor’s office your home’s actual value. What this should mean for you is SAVINGS!
Of course you need to pay your taxes, but you shouldn’t have to pay more than your fair share of taxes. If you think the your estimated home value is too high, call a member of our BHURDinUtah team today and save yourself some money!
