I got some great news recently for a client, so I wanted to share the bliss. This client hired me to help him get his property taxes in sync with the current market since his home in Carmichael was overassessed by over $200,000 (ouch). After I turned in my tax appeal report to the Assessment Appeals Board in Sacramento County, his assessed value was lowered by $222,574. This means he’ll be getting a $2,300+ refund check in the mail. Cha-ching.
There is so much confusion and dishonest information out there about the property tax appeals process. If you have any questions, you may want to read 5 Things to Know about 2013 Property Taxes (or watch the video below). Then be sure to look up your 2013 assessment on the Assessor’s website.
Question: What would you do with a $2,300 refund check? Comment below.
