Another tax year starts in January and regardless of the assessment for most properties the overall general and school taxes are slated to increase because of the 2020 revaluation.
The tax bill you receive in January must be paid even if you believe it is too high. Unless you filed a grievance last year it is too late to complain about the taxes. The grievance period starting in January and is to complain about the 2024/2025 taxes. Yes, you have to complain about the assessment almost two years in advance even though the tax bills will not be ready until October 2024.
The safest plan is to check the new assessment in January and have an experienced reputable tax certiorari firm look at that assessment to determine if the assessment and taxes can be lowered.
Remember, the Assessor is not your friend!
