Property Tax Assessment Appeal Course
In a perfect world, property taxes appeals and resolutions should be worked out by enthusiastic state adjusters. They should be looking to work with the homeowner in order to arrive at a just resolution for market value to assess the fair share of the overall tax burden. They would have the welfare of their customer, the homeowner, first in mind. The rub is, that is rarely the case.
Communities and the people inhabiting communities are different. Having experienced a wide range of attitudes both myself and from other property tax appeal consultants and appraisers, the mindset of most taxing authorities is to preserve the aggregate tax base and play hardball against anyone appealing their property tax.
These authorities impose time limitations for filing appeals, percentage limitations to appeal, many property tax adjustors that lack empathy and are unwilling to work with the homeowner for resolution, lack of instructions for the homeowner in gathering evidence in an arranged format to support their case, a town attorney that uses intimidating and disparaging verbiage to cast the appellant in an unfavorable light when conducting a municipal appeal, and other tactics to suppress property tax appeals.
The tax system seems at odds with what is common sense. Tax districts manage their own costs and rely on the taxpayer to pay for the infrastructure, school systems by way of a tax rate. Although tax assessments can be appealed, tax rates cannot be appealed.
Neighboring municipalities of affluent neighborhoods sporting high-end amenities can be found to have the same or even lower tax rates as poorer working class neighborhoods. Those living in a better location can find themselves paying comparatively less than those living in poorer neighborhoods.

Property Tax Assessor Ethics
Legislatures and politicians lack the political will to increase state sales taxes or state income tax to pay for any targeted cut in property taxes. However, more important, is the lack of will for legislatures and politicians to live economically, increase efficiency and lower their expenses. Nowhere is this system more terrorizing than in New Jersey, the highest property tax in the nation (the average New Jersey family property tax jumped from paying $6,244 to $7,410 in 2013); tax and spend, the householder be damned.
Overspending, excess state entitlements, flagrant infrastructure outlays and a lack of reward to expense mentality have captured not only New Jersey, but other states. The US Government and Congress further aggravate the situation by their reckless conduct.
An enlightened leadership and fair treatment of communities of homeowners is possible. Political office needs filling by those of social grace, legislatures and public servants keeping the best interest of their people and householders in their heart. They will be known by their signs of compassion, serving and a head to toe awareness for right action. They will never practice temptation and choose to live in love, truth and simplicity.
The essence of this mindset can be found within a Christian, a Jew, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Buddhist, Kriya Yoga and other spiritual paths. It's not found in followers of blind ambition, it is not an organization, it is not an apostate but a committed servant to humanity.
We need men and women who are not looking for safety, looking to control, or looking for approval, rather people of compassion in public office. Men and women committed to helping the householders by relieving them of some of their heavy load.
Testing for knowledge of a subject for any public servant may be important, however, testing for the right compassionate candidate is essential if change is to be on the horizon. Utilizing unfakeable testing coupled with definitive psychological examinations can eliminate undesirable and unevolved public servants. With government employees gaming the system to earn 30 percent or more than the governed, it's about time for a fair shake.
The best recourse is finding someone who took a property tax assessment appeal course.
People who have a degree of self discipline and passions should consider self-employment. If you’re considering whether to work at home, think about the pros and cons, your work ethic and the career path you want to take. And if you do decide that working at home is your cup of tea, prepare to practice more discipline and to make others envious of your flexible schedule.
