Appealing Your Property Taxes
If you believe your property has been assessed higher than the market value, you may want to contact your local tax assessor's office to find out the procedure to appeal your property tax assessment. Maybe you can appeal your assessment informally; most likely, however, you will have to go through a formal tax-appeal process, which begins with an appeal filed with the appropriate assessment appeals board.

The Homestead Exemption for the year 2015-2016 is $36,900.
