How to Appeal a Property Tax Assessment in Connecticut
Appealing a property tax assessment in Connecticut can be a complicated process. That being said, you can and should take action to challenge an unfair or inaccurate assessment.
Our West Hartford, CT tax appeal attorneys and Middletown, CT property tax appeal attorneys will offer guidance on the specific steps that you must follow.
While property tax assessments are generally done at the local level, the appeals process is also governed by Connecticut state law (Connecticut General Statutes Chapter 203).
To prevail in a property tax appeal in Connecticut, a plaintiff generally needs to establish one of the following things:
- The property has been overassessed/overvalued for tax assessment purposes;
- The appraisal method was inappropriate for the particular piece of property and/or the appraiser used the incorrect statutory formula to value property; or
- The town had no authority to tax the subject property.
In such cases, a finding would be good cause to demonstrate that your property taxes are unjustly high and/or improper.
All Connecticut property owners should know that you have a limited amount of time to file a property tax appeal. If you believe that assessed taxes are too high and/or that you have been improperly taxed, you should reach out to an experienced property tax appeal lawyer as soon as possible.
