How to apply for a real estate tax abatement


SPECIAL REAL ESTATE TAX UPDATE FOR WESTPORT Home Owners

If you feel your real estate tax assessment is too high, you have the right to contest your assessment. To do so, you must file an application for an abatement in writing on an approved form with the Board of Assessors. You may apply for an abatement if you believe your property is valued at more than its fair cash value or it is not assessed fairly in comparison with other properties. I would be happy to give you a comparison of properties similar to yours to support your claim. This is a FREE service I am pleased to offer to my friends & valued clients. The deadline to file an abatement is Feb. 1, 2007. Call me for more information at (508) 636-3310
