It is a right that every homeowner has and there is no risk (unless you added square footage to your home without pulling a permit). The assessments are determined by a computer program that analyzes numbers and doesn’t account well for specific differences between quality of houses and neighborhood boundaries. There is always a chance that you can get a reduction of any kind. When you appeal an actual appraiser reviews actual sales comps to determine your appeal. This is going to be a much more accurate appraisal value.
