As we approach the end of the year the various cities and counties in Cincinnati will begin to calculate the property taxes that we all owe. Some areas of Cincinnati are currently in a tax abatement zone (they pay less or no property tax at all), but the rest of us will owe our 2009 property taxes in 2010.
What happens if you feel your property taxes are too high? If a number of houses have sold in your area and you are certain they were for less than your home’s taxable value? As a Cincinnati Realtor I have access to the information and the insight you need to appeal your property taxes.
Property taxes are based on the value of your home, and your home is only as valuable as the homes in your neighborhood. If they sell for less then your home is worth less and that is important in appealing property taxes. Considering the economic changes that occurred between 2007 and today property values in Cincinnati have changed. Some areas have appreciated, and some have depreciated. It is important to know where your house is valued so you can make sure you are paying your fair share. If you have questions about appealing your property taxes please contact me and I will be happy to consult with you. 513-518-1140
