Your home may be worth less than the local tax assessor believes and that could mean a smaller property tax bill.

It's up to you to appeal your tax bill. An over valued, over assessed property is one of the most common and successful grounds for challenging your tax bill. 

The rule is this: When home prices rise, so do property taxes which are tied to a home's value. On the other hand, when home values fall, so do those same property taxes.

2011 is a reappraisal year for homeowners in Colorado Springs. Filing an appeal can only use sold comparables from the 18-month period specified by the El Paso County Assessor. 

If you feel your home is assessed too high, call Jason Daniels at RE/MAX Advantage 719-268-8086 for a comlimentary review of your home's current value.
