I have talked on this blog about my property tax appeal company as it relates to residential properties, but now I want to make it a point to mention commercial properties in the Sacramento Region.
What’s the difference in requirements for residential vs. commercial property tax disputes? Not much. The process and timeline for contesting property taxes for commercial properties in the Sacramento area is the same as residential. The exact same application is filled out (Application for Changed Assessment) and the County Assessor asks the commercial property owner to provide the same thing as would be provided in a residential tax dispute – evidence for a true opinion of market value as of January 1, 2009 (that’s where we come in).
Our company at SacramentoTaxAppeals.com handles residential and land property tax appeals for the bulk of our work, but we also collaborate with an experienced General Real Estate Appraiser who handles the commercial properties ordered through our company. Please contact us today so that we can understand your situation and the type of property you have so that we can figure out the depth of work necessary for your tax appeal needs. A full commercial appraisal may not be necessary (we all know how much commercial appraisals can cost). Call us today at 916-595-3735 for more information.
Keep in mind that the time-frame to dispute commercial property taxes in Sacramento County is July 2, 2009 to November 30, 2009 while in Placer County and some surrounding counties the time-frame is July 2, 2009 to September 15, 2009.
