If Elliott appeals my assessment and wins, will my tax bill be less than last year?
Not necessarily. But, in nearly all cases, if we file a tax appeal for you and win, your taxes will be less than otherwise and you will save money.
Your taxes are based on:
If the originally proposed assessment were reflected on your bill, your taxes (before exemptions) would be higher.
The difference between the taxes based on the original assessment and the final one because of the appeal we filed is the tax savings.
Your tax bill following a successful appeal could be more or less than the prior year. Why?
The savings you realize from a tax appeal is not computed by comparing this year’s bill to last year’s because there are other factors that change from year to year that affect your bill. The savings you realize from a tax appeal is the difference between the taxes you would have owed had no appeal been filed and the taxes you will owe following the appeal.
