NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HMS Associates, a company of New York real estate appraisers, is calling attention to the forthcoming March 3rd deadline for appealing inaccurate tax assessments that will define your property taxes for the fiscal year of 2014. Property owners suspicious of their current property tax rate are encouraged to employ an appraiser to get an accurate current evaluation of all their holdings.
"The main goal is to prove to the tax office that the assessment is wrong and that the fair market value of the property is significantly lower," said Sam Heskel, Founder and Executive Vice President at HMS Associates. A Brooklyn appraiser himself, Heskel's company can offer a real estate appraisal to property owners throughout all five boroughs.
With the regular fluctuations in the market, keeping an accurate tab on the value of your property can be difficult for individuals. A local tax assessor who has evaluated the net worth of your property, and in turn, the cost of your property taxes, often go long periods without reassessing value. If an assessment was done during a particularly strong or weak month for real estate, there is a good chance the assessment is inaccurate.
If you are a homeowner looking to file a tax appeal, you can do so on your own or hire professionals to do the assessments. The paperwork to file such an appeal is available at your local tax office. If you plan to employ a professional New York real estate appraiser, it is important to begin that process soon. With that looming March deadline, many property owners are utilizing these finite services right now.
Established in 1998, HMS Associates offer individual homeowners or people with multiple properties a Brooklyn appraiser to assess the value of their holdings right now. The timeliness of an appraisal is key in ensuring the numbers are accurate.
