St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 10, 2012
A new, proprietary web application called Home Tax Alert™ helps over-assessed homeowners across the country reduce their property tax. The technology identifies over-assessed homes and streamlines the appeal process, making it easy and understandable for homeowners.
According to the companies findings approximately 25% of American homes are over-assessed in any given year.
All counties in the State of Florida offer residents a twenty-five day period to appeal their property tax assessment beginning in August. The appeal period commences on the date the assessment is mailed to the homeowner and may vary by county. To be safe, homeowners who believe they are paying excessive property tax should mail or deliver their request for a lower tax to the county within three weeks of receiving their re-assessment from the mail. The Home Tax Alert technology facilitates this process.
“Local assessors are doing the best job they can within the limited resources available to them. But the real estate market changes every day. We now have a way to better keep up with those changes and help homeowners that are over-assessed.” says Keith Grosz, CEO of Home Tax Alert, LLC.
The Home Tax Alert technology works by incorporating the regulations of the local taxing jurisdiction with public records and then applies the algorithms of its patent pending software to determine which homes are over-assessed. Those homeowners now have access to this technology through http://www.HomeTaxAlert.com. The site was designed to be user-friendly and offer the tools homeowners need for an easy, understandable and accurate property tax appeal.
The development of the technology began in 2009 and it has been continuously refined by a leading team of CPA’s, attorney’s, property tax professionals and statisticians. It has been extensively tested for accuracy and ease of use. To date, the web application has already helped thousands of homeowners reduce their home property tax with a success rate of 80%. Homeowners that use the Home Tax Alert application and successfully earn a tax reduction pay a one-time fee equal to 50% of the first year’s savings. The application is otherwise free of charge.
Grosz adds, “Our customers understand that they have to pay every cent they owe in home property taxes, they just want to pay what is fair.”
Founded in 2011, Home Tax Alert’s mission is to make property tax reduction fast, accurate and understandable for over-assessed homeowners.
