You will receive your 2008 tax notice by the end of August. If you are contesting the market and or assessed value, you should contact Britt at (305) 663-7334 x170.
Petition forms for the appeal of your taxes must be filed by September 17, 2008. If you feel that the County Appraiser valued your property higher than the current market value, you should call us.
Britt recently successfully argued a 2007 appeal for a home in Coral Gables and convinced the county's Special Master to reduce the assessment by $197,555 (a reduction or 25%). The tax millage is 19.53 resulting in a tax savings of $3,858.25.
Call Britt at (800) 869-5517 x170.
P.S. Starting with 2008 as a base year, the assessments of non-homestead properties are limited to a 10% increase until there is a change in ownership or control. Thus, the 2008 assessment and appeals are important.
