Outrageous Property Tax Assessment? You Can Appeal!

Appeal Your Property Tax Assessment!

Your local tax authority does not always consider all the changes that occur to your property when it assesses your property value. This valuation directly affects how much you pay in property tax.

Given recent circumstances with your property, you may think your property is worth much less than the tax assessment. On the flip side, you may think the valuation is too low.

If you think your property tax assessment is unfair, you have the right to appeal. Real estate attorney David Hannum offers some sound advice in this short video.

Well, it’s springtime in Colorado and that also means that it’s property tax time in Colorado. This time of year millions of Coloradans will get from their local tax authority a property tax statement that says this is what we think your property is valued at.

What’s the ACTUAL Value of your Property?

Unfortunately, when these statements go out, the tax authorities often don’t know anything in particular about your property.

They might not know that you’ve had a fire or a flood. Maybe you are currently undergoing remodeling. They may not know you were unable to rent your property for a long period of time.

In all of these circumstances you are likely to have a property that’s worth a lot less than what is recorded on that tax assessor statement – and you’re entitled to an appeal.

I’m David Hannum with the Colorado Springs Office of Robinson and Henry.

I often do property tax appeals on behalf of individuals and their residential properties as well as folks who own commercial properties and commercial businesses here in the state.

If you feel that you have a property tax assessment that’s far in excess of what your property is worth, I’m happy to take your call.
