It is a one-of-a-kind service providing you with real-time market-based information and analysis to test the reasonableness of your current home tax assessment.

If an appeal is warranted, HomeTaxSavings™ will provide property specific analysis of comparable market data and present that data in a format you can present directly to the local tax assessment office.

Also, all local jurisdictional forms required for an appeal will be completed with the requisite property and market data that can be directly submitted to the local assessment office.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Is this a fair market value appraisal?”]

No, Home Tax Savings is an assessment tool.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Can these reports be used to get a loan?”]No. Financial institutions use their own services.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Do you guarantee that my assessment will be lowered? “]

No.  As in any assessment review, parties at interest can legitimately dispute the findings. On the other hand, we provide an analysis of actual market transactions and adjustments to those prices based on surveys with local real estate professionals and proprietary analyses.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do you manage to provide us with local documentation?”]

We have contacted each area jurisdiction that Home Tax Savings operates in. We have gone directly to each of those offices and have downloaded the necessary forms.

We complete each of the jurisdiction’s required forms with your personal home data and analytical results

The completed paperwork and the assessment analysis of prices are included in the final package that is provided to you in PDF format that can be saved to your files or printed for direct filing with your local assessment office.

The HomeTaxSavings™ report package includes both the financial and market analysis of sales that can be used for an appeal.  It includes jurisdictionally required documents that can be filed directly with the local tax assessment office

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are your qualifications for providing these services?”]The executive team at Home Tax Savings is comprised of assessment, IT and tax professionals with over 100-years of tax-saving services to the real estate industry.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why are you offering this service?”]

  • Until now the real estate community has chosen to ignore the challenges facing individual home owners when confronted with continually rising home taxes.
  • Annual real estate taxes are often one of the largest single, recurring expenses facing a homeowner.
  • There are a lot of sites that help you find properties for sale but none that help you manage annual expenses once that property has been sold.
  • Previously, the only option was to spend hours trying to locate and document comparable market information. Costs for obtaining such information are considerable.  We manage the entire process at minimal cost.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is your jurisdictional base?”]We are introducing Home Tax Savings on an incremental basis to ensure that the best quality information and real-time analysis can be provided.

One of the benefits of joining as a free member is our ability to keep you informed as our platform expands nationwide.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Is there a minimum level below which you are not recommending an appeal?”]

Yes, our system is set up to identity when the potential savings is $200 or more per year.  Although the typical appeal is for only one year, if your appeal is successful your new baseline value will be from a lower starting point for next year’s value creating multi-year savings.  So, a $200 single year savings can easily translate into $600 savings over a three year period.
