I love being a property owner. But I don’t love paying property taxes. Alas, they’re unavoidable. However, you should always fight your property taxes if the government over inflates your assessed value. This happened to me and I wasn’t about to let the government screw me over.
Last year, I scored a victory against tyranny when I successfully fought sans lawyer to get the city to lower my assessed property value by 12%. If you’ve been reading this site for a while, you know I’m persistent as hell and will fight to the end for what I believe in.
My insurance company tried to cheat me by saying my house was 50% larger than reality so they could charge 50% higher home insurance premiums. Nuh uh tricky dick! I was able to increase my coverage by some 30% and in the end only pay 13% more from the original cost.
