Property Tax

Fanning Law, LLC Is The First Place To Turn To For Property Tax Appeal.

Property tax is a tax that is calculated by the local government and is based on the value of the said property that is owned by either an individual or corporation. It may include tangible personal property like cars and boats depending on the area. Property taxes generally serve to benefit the general area's schools and parks and infrastructure. A property tax appeal is needed when something goes wrong in the assessment of the value of a property that leaves a home or property owner owing more than they think they should, or when other mistakes are made that leaves you with a bill you do not believe you should have to pay. This type of appeal can be handled through a law firm with ease and leave you with less stress and likely more money in the long term. A property tax attorney can also handle cases that go beyond a miscalculation of the value of the property to protect the home or landowners from the bureaucracy of the system.
