An owner’s house is exactly the same size, age and style as four of his neighbor’s houses, but he pays 25% more in taxes. This lack of uniformity is a sign that the property is being over-taxed.

Over Valuation

A couple purchased a home for $300,000 in an arm’s-length transaction, but the Assessor estimated the market value at $360,000 - a full $60,000 above the actual price. This is a sign that the owners will be paying more than they should in taxes.

Property Description Errors

A house is listed at 1700 square feet of living space, but the Assessor shows it at 1900. When the Assessor measurements show a higher square footage than actual, an owner is paying tax on more house than she owns.
