I have been trying to get clarification on procedures for filing appeals of property tax bills and filing for tax credits.Ã‚Â From what I understand, if you are not in agreement with your new valuation youÃ‚Â must firstÃ‚Â file an “informal” appeal .Ã‚Â The information used to evaluate your propertyÃ‚Â will beÃ‚Â checked for accuracy.Ã‚Â If you are still not satisfied you may make a “formal” appeal.Ã‚Â While making a formal appeal you should pay the average of the 2005 and 2006 bills (2005 +2006 /2).
Ã‚Â Tax Credits are also available for such things as Homestead, Senior, Veteran, and Circuit Breaker.Ã‚Â The circuit breaker applies if yourÃ‚Â taxes have increased by more than 125% from the year before and household income is less than $135,000.Ã‚Â

See information on the Ã‚Â credits in a recent article in The Source:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â http://www.onepaper.com/stthomasvi/?v=d&i=&s=News:Local+Government&p=1223618717
