News: Record Year for Tax Appeals
March 28, 2009
Put together declining property values, governmental budget increases, distressed property owners and assessment ratios that kept declining — and the year 2009 may be the perfect storm for tax appeal filings. Attorneys and property owners are filing appeals in record numbers as the April 1 deadline approaches.
