Expert Property Tax Appeal Services in San Francisco

Proposition 8 – Decline in Value Appeals:

In the dynamic San Francisco real estate market, it's not uncommon for property owners to grapple with assessed values that surpass the current market values. Such discrepancies might arise from inaccuracies in the assessor recorder's records, misclassification of properties, or even factors like new construction that haven't been correctly accounted for. Thankfully, SF Tax Appeal specializes in navigating these challenges, ensuring that homeowners receive accurate property assessments that reflect the real market value of their asset. If you believe your property tax bill mirrors an over-assessment, don't hesitate to contact us at (628) 333-9492.

San Francisco property owners have Proposition 8 under state law to their advantage. This regulation enables them to contest the assessed value of their property. Demonstrating that your property's market value is notably lower than its assessed value can compel the county to adjust your property taxes. This could mean either a temporary reduction in your upcoming secured property tax or a refund for overpayments on prior assessed values.

SF Tax Appeal stands out for its efficiency in this domain. By liaising with the county and the tax collector office, we ensure that the property tax rate applied is in sync with the property's real value. Our commitment to our clients extends beyond just services; we champion affordability with a success fee of merely 33%. It embodies our core belief of delivering cost-effective tax appeal solutions that prioritize our clients' interests. With the fiscal year-end and due dates like June 30 approaching, it's crucial to address any disparities in your tax bill promptly. Let us help you align your property's assessed value with its true market value.
