Appealing Property Taxes
One tax appeal business property tax consulting business has filed what many would find a serious allegation pitted against homeowners seeking fair equalization in regard to their property with their exact appraised value. The allegation against the Texas Attorney General's Office and the principles who decide how much is paid in property taxes if you live in Fort Bend County. See: http://abclocal.go.com//story?section=news/local&id=9183727
The allegation stems around the Fort Bend Appraisal Review Board that has a policy of not accepting property tax reduction valuations under 5 percent. Their cut off point is arbitrary and is not in keeping with fairness to the taxpayer. 5% is bad enough, but New Jersey is one of the worst with a cutoff at 15 percent!
Considering the average property taxes in many regions of New Jersey are in the six to ten thousand dollar range, 15 percent is a significant savings to any homeowner. Where are the Ralph Nader's and other advocates for the people?
Clearly, the tax system is an adversarial system pitting the taxpayer against the town tax assessor with an entrenched system. Most taxpayers lack the expertise or time to file the type of appeal where they make adjustments for all the variable that are in their favor. This applies to small businesses as well since their day to day activities take a significant portion of their time.

Appealing Property Taxes and The Tax Appeal Business
A tax appeal business is the answer to a need that is begging to be filled. Consider these statistics: The National Taxpayers Union writes that as many as 60% of all homeowners are over-assessed and not in line with their home value. ("How To Fight Property Taxes" 2004 p.1). Consumer Reports has published that property tax records show an error rate of 40% exists in estimating property taxes. (Nov.1992 v57 nil p.723).

As a property tax consultant to homeowners and small businesses, you'll never lack customers. Competition is almost non-existent. It is a clear need that needs to be addressed, and working on a contingency basis makes the effort worthwhile for both the property tax consultant and the client.
If someone doesn't step in on behalf of the homeowner or small business that is over-assessed, those same erroneous taxes roll over year after year. I've seen home assessed for over $7,000 and paying that amount year after year, yet when sold and taken to a property tax appeal, had the taxes reduced over 25%.
There is much egregious lack of care in the marketplace that speaks loudly in favor tax appeal business. There are many who need help. It's an opportunity that few know exist. And, it's not hard to find clients and cases that are taxed over-the-top; many have a sneaking suspicion that they are. The property tax consulting business is a business that helps to right the wrong.
