Property Tax Relief?

If you're a homeowner your probably not expecting a property tax refund this year. Chances are you've also been hearing how property values have fallen sharply since the peak of the real estate market in 2007. In fact, according to S&P/Case-Shiller, the "Composite U.S. Index" home prices peaked in Q1 of 2007 at 184.17 and have fallen 33% to the current level of 123.33 in Q1 of 2012. So the logical next question; if my property value has plunged 33%, then my property taxes have falling accordingly....right? You don't need me to tell you that it's just the opposite. Most homeowners we talk with here at Disaster Property Tax Relief, LLC have actually seen their taxes INCREASE by 30% over the past 5 years. Increasing Property Tax Bills--How is that even possible? From 2004 to 2007, cities received record cash-flow resulting from several bubbles created by easy money and no money down real estate. The real estate bubble, consumer spending bubble, consumer debt bubble and stock market bubble, all created huge increases in sales tax revenue and real estate taxes. In fact, you know it's a bubble when your local Dominick's check out girl is quitting her job to become a real estate investor! Property values, sales tax and real estate tax revenue surged for most local, county and State governments. But how did they utilize these new revenues? Rather than being conservative and paying down debt, creating rainy day funds or issuing property tax refunds to the taxpayers, cities and county government spent like crack addicts with a new welfare check. More projects, more overhead, more schools, more equipment, more workers, higher pensions, higher maintenance, more, more, and still more spending. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Data, total "Local Government" workers increased from 13,056,000 in January of 2000 to 14,576,000 increased by January of 2009. That's an 11.6% increase. On the "State" level, workers grew from 4,677,000 to 5,193,000 for the same period, increasing by 11%. When the party ended in 2008 it was time to pay the piper. Cities like Stockton and San Bernardino California, Harrisburg Pennsylvania and many others have been forced to file bankruptcy. They just couldn't pay for all the "Goodies". In response, cities like New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles began to tax anything and everything that moved. But even as Cook County Property Tax values fell by 37% since 2007 (RealtyTrac.com), taxes on homes and businesses have skyrocketed. Cities must make up the loss in total revenue and that's bad news for you! However, Disaster Property Tax Relief can help.
