Property Tax Appeals Soaring

As U.S. home prices continue to fall, property owners in most major U.S. cities are demanding lower taxes, Bloomberg reported Dec. 8. Bloomberg reported specifically on states such as Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, California and Illinois.

Real estate values plunged 30 percent below their peak of April 2006, according to the third quarter S&P/Case-Shiller index of property values in 20 cities, released Nov. 30. Values may drop 10 percent more, Greg Lippmann, a founder of LibreMax Capital LLC, said Dec. 2 at the Hedge Funds New York Conference hosted by Bloomberg Link.

In the Midwest, Illinois may have 19,350 property appeals in 2010, 10 percent more than in 2009, Louis Apostol, executive director of the state’s Property Tax Appeal Board, told Bloomberg. The backlog amounts to about 35,000 claims, of which more than 80 percent come from homeowners and the board approves an average of 30 percent of them, he said.

This is an issue which is of main concern nowadays. Many people does not have money to own a house. So now the rise in the tax is a main issue.

Real Estate properties have been quite unaffordable because of these taxes. It seemed almost impossible for most to acquire their own home.

I totally agree with this post. There were thousands of appeals in the state of Florida. With property values losing value contiually, it makes sense to adjust the property taxes but some people have to call to make that happen.

"The property tax is the main source of revenue in a lot of these places. So any hit to the property tax means that there will be some cuts in services somewhere..
