Real estate taxes are frequently the largest non-productive expense incurred by property owners, and proactive management of this expense could lead to increased profitability and increased valuation of income-producing properties.  It is important to be proactive and review those assessments, and file appeals when appropriate to make sure that for each property you own, you are paying your fair share, and only your fair share, of the property tax burden.
