Tax Reassessment Scams and How to Avoid Them

If you are a homeowner, you may have received a solicitation in the mail for companies that will help you obtain a tax reassessment on your property. First of all, what is a tax reassessment?

Basically, a tax reassessment pertains to the amount of property tax you pay on your property. If your home loan is higher than the value of your property, or if your property’s value has decreased since your last tax bill, you can request a reassessment of your property to try and lower the amount you pay in property taxes. This is something that any homeowner can do fairly easily.

However, there are companies out there who will solicit homeowners to offer to help obtain a property tax reassessment for a fee. While this practice is technically legal, there seems to be no regulation in what these companies may charge for their service, or what sort of guarantee their service offers.

Again, this is something that homeowners can do for free without being charged a fee from so-called Property Tax Reassessment companies.
