Are Your Property Taxes Too High?
March 1st, 2010 11:00 AM

Did you know you may be paying too much in property taxes for your home?

It's true. Delaware county has seen a decline in home values over the last 3 years in some neighborhoods. With the rise of foreclosures in last 24 months property values have taken a downturn. You may be wondering how this has affected your asset. Are you thinking of selling your home, refinance, or buy a new home? Then it's imperative you know if the assessed value of that home is accurate to avoid over paying in taxes.

At E & E Consultants, Inc, we often get questions from concerned home owners regarding their property taxes being too high. And for good reason. If you are one of them, we always recommend:

  1. Find out what your home assessment is as this determines what your properties values are. To do that click on this link Delaware County Auditors page and type in your address. There you should find your home value assessment. Then,
  2. Do your homework. Call an appraiser and/or find out what other homes have been selling for in your area. A reputable appraiser would be happy to assist in this. If after doing some homework you still feel your assessment is too high then,
  3. Get an appraisal from an unbiased Certified Residential Appraiser in Ohio who knows your area well. 
  4. Then fill out the required Delaware County Tax Appeal Form. Click on this link to download the form. Then,
  5. Attach the appraisal with the form and turn it in by March 31st, 2010 to appeal your 2009 tax assessments. Hurry.
