Completely Online Property Tax Assessment Appeals and Exemptions

Property owners who wish to reduce their tax burden with a property tax assessment appeal or exemption are often faced with time-intensive and complex processes that rely heavily on paper and antiquated county systems. Manual processes at the city or county office also increase the time it takes to process these appeals and exemptions and resolve each case.
