For homeowners who are unhappy with their tax bills, the first place they should look is the assessment that was completed by the county. Then, the county where the home is located determines how much tax is charged per $100 of assessed value. It is important to take action quickly upon receiving a tax bill that is higher than expected. While each county has an appeals process, there is also a deadline by which that appeal must be filed in order for it to be heard.
