- How are my property taxes determined?
In Wisconsin, property taxes are based on the value of your property.
First, the fair market value is determined by the assessor using comparable sales and market data. The value determined by the assessor is then multiplied by the municipality's mill rate to determine what your property taxes will be.
- When can I appeal my property taxes?
You are given the opportunity to appeal your property taxes every year. Appeals typically begin in April; however, each municipality has different appeal times. Please contact us with your specific property information, and we will let you know when your municipality's property assessment appeal is.
- Where do you get your information to appeal the property values
We have access to multiple avenues of research and information regarding your property which are not available to the general public. There is a great deal of research and preparation involved to objectively represent you; therefore, it is critical to receive your client agreement to get started right away.
- Do I need an appraisal?
Appraisals are not required, but are a helpful tool in the process. If you have one, we can review it, discuss its validity, and determine how it applies to your assessment.
- How much does your service cost?
We work on a contingency basis. If we are not successful, there is no cost to you.
