About Property Taxes
We have many clients that are in danger of losing their homes due to foreclosure from unpaid property taxes. As soon as a bankruptcy is filed, the county is prevented from proceeding with foreclosure. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you get caught up on past-due property taxes over time with an affordable monthly payment.
It is possible property tax bills may even be lowered. We have been successful in reducing property taxes significantly up to 50% in some cases. The fair market value of your home is determinative in how much you pay in property taxes. We provide the following services:
- Determine whether your city is properly determining your home’s fair market value
- Conduct a market analysis
- Draft and file an appeal to your city to have your property taxes lowered
- Once lowered, annual increases are capped by state statute
