Quick Tips For Lowering Your Property Taxes

 


Tax season is coming up faster than you might realize, and instead of being surprised when it does come, you can get ahead of the curve and begin lowering your costs now. When it comes to your property taxes, there are a few quick ways to get those to lower before April hits. Here are some of our favorite tips to ensure you are paying the lowest amount possible on your property taxes this year!

Avoid Building

Even if you have been itching for some home upgrades, try to hold off until after tax season. Any significant structural changes to your home will most likely increase your bills this year. This isn’t to scare you off from new homebuilding all together. It’s just recommended that you do a complete search into what a new addition will do to your property taxes before starting construction.

Search For Exemptions

Depending on your situation, you might be eligible for certain tax exemptions. A few categories that states and municipalities lower taxes for include: seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and agricultural properties. Look into your taxing authority if you feel any of these apply to you.

Ask For Property Tax Card

Did you know that you can head on over to your town hall and request a copy of your property tax cards from your local assessor’s office? This card will provide you with information the town has gathered over the years about your property and allows you to take note of any discrepancies. You can raise these issues with your tax assessor and potentially correct any mistakes found.
