Tax Assessment Appeal Appraisal “The best way to win an assessment appeal hearing is with a certified appraisal. ” — John Weinstein, Allegheny County Treasurer – Source: KDKA Apr.26, 2002 6:06 pm
Due to the recent downturn of home prices over the past several years, a large percentage of homes in the Pittsburgh area still have a tax assessment based on much higher property values prior to this decline. So there’s a very good chance you’re paying more than your fair share of property taxes and why many should consider Tax Assessment Appeal Appraisal!
Sometimes, matters like this can be resolved with a phone call. However, if after discussing your assessment with your local taxing authority you still feel as though your property has been overvalued, a professional, independent, third-party appraiser is often your best bet in proving your case with a tax assessment appeal Appraisal.
That’s where Bostedo Appraisal Services comes in. There are a lot of different procedures for appealing tax assessments so it’s important to enlist the help of a professional appraisal company that’s experienced and trained in the ins and outs of the assessment appeal process.
Prior to hiring a certified appraiser, it often makes sense to do your own research before determining whether to move forward with a property assessment appeal, especially before making the decision of hiring a professional appraiser.
Keep in mind, according to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), we as appraisers are not allowed to take “shortcuts” — i.e., your research – and use it as face value as part of our independent evaluation. When you hire an appraiser for an assessment appeal appraisal, you’re commissioning us as an independent, third-party to perform a professional appraisal report.
As such, we do our own evaluation for a tax assessment appeal appraisal from beginning to end. If you’re correct that your property has been overvalued, an independent appraisal report such as ours from a State certified Appraiser will be more persuasive than any other evidence you can provide on your own. But once again it does depend on our ability to do the work independently.
