You might have received a notice that your real estate taxes will be lower in 2020 – don’t count on it. Since the 2020/21 re-assessment was made there have been thousands of protests/complaints/grievances and corrections. It is already too late to complain about the taxes and assessment for next year.
Tax rates will have to increase to offset the many assessment reductions that will be made.
Be ready to file a complaint to the new assessment that will be ready in January 2020. By the way, the County is dismissing complaints that have unreadable signatures unless they are corrected within 35 days of a notice to dismiss for a “defective authorization”.
