I do not agree with my property tax assessment, what are my alternatives?

A taxpayer has a right to appeal their  property tax assessment for any reason. The burden of proof, however,  will be on the taxpayer to prove why they should have their assessment  changed. Just saying: "My taxes are too high" is not sufficient. Note  also that three things may happen on appeal. 1) the tax may be raised;  2) it may be lowered; 3) it may remain the same.
