CINCINNATI (FOX19) – Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes is warning people who own property in Hamilton County about a company named ValueAppeal LLC that is sending letter to homeowners saying the county may have overvalued their properties and offering a “custom report” for $99.
Rhodes said owners can do the research on their own and can file an appeal for no charge with the Board of Revision (BOR). “We often advise homeowners to contact a Realtor who is active in their area for an independent opinion of their value,” he said. “They can also review recent sales of comparable properties on our website www.hcauditor.org”.
The site says "If you are paying too much, our Tax Appeal Kit is guaranteed to lower your tax bill—or your money back. Users save an average of $1,346 a year in property taxes."
