How Kensington Property Tax Appeals Work
Who We Serve
Your home is likely the most important investment you will ever make. Don’t pay more in property taxes than you should. Give us your address and we’ll estimate how much you may be able to save based on 5 comparable properties or “comps.”
If you own/manage multiple single-family homes or small apartment buildings, staying vigilant against unfair assessment increases goes straight to your bottom line. Give us a list of your addresses and we’ll estimate your savings.
If you recently made a property purchase, make sure you’re not overspending on property taxes. If you can share 3 years of your income and expense statements, we can provide an estimate of how much you may be able to save on appeal.

- The system is rigged so why bother?
- Property tax appeals are a scam.
- I already won a property tax reduction. Why do it again?
- The process is too complicated and time consuming.
- Why appeal before a reassessment? My property taxes are going to go up anyway.
- I will save a lot of money by appealing myself.
- Assessors rely on appeals to improve fairness of assessments
- When you don’t appeal, you are effectively underwriting the savings of those who do.
- Counties don’t always keep up with recent sales and, if you don’t appeal every year, you may be leaving money on the table.
- The process is complicated, but not for our clients. We stay on top of all the deadlines. Nothing gets missed.
- Appealing before your home is reassessed could reduce your next bill by thousands, and any increase may be mitigated by the reduction to your assessment.
- Only if you don’t put a value on your time and don’t count the extra savings that expertise and multiple appeals can yield.
