Property Tax Appeal

The expense of property taxation is one of the major expenditures by any business owner or home owner.  Every March, the county sends out valuation notice of the alleged "fair market value" of your tract based upon an appraisal by the County staff.   

The owner usually goes through the County informal hearing to determine the fair market value of the tract and  is subjected to the appraisal prepared by the County Appraiser staff and to the decision made by the county staff member based upon that appraisal.    

The owner's next option is to file an appeal with the Court of Tax Appeals in Topeka.   If the owner is a corporate entity, such as a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), or limited liability partnership, then an attorney must represent the corporate entity in filing an appeal.  

We will evaluate your property tax matter from the beginning and to obtain an appraisal that will represent the fair market value of your tract.  We can represent you from the informal conference with the County Appraiser office through the final hearing at the Court of Tax Appeal.   

There are other legal issues, which most property owners are not aware of, for the County staff and the Court of Tax Appeals to determine the fair market value of the tract.  There are strict deadlines in filing appeals in the property valuation process.  Please contact us for a free consultation.
