NOW IS THE TIME TO FILE ANY PROTEST TO YOUR REAL ESTATE TAXES AND VALUES
An protests or requests for lower your Property Values in Cuyahoga County must be filed between 1/1/2009 and 3/31/2009.
Here is the link in Cuyahoga County Records to start the process of disputing the Tax Value on a property. http://treasurer.cuyahogacounty.us/taxpayer/contesting.htm
Prior to filing a protest they should look on the auditors site to see what value the property is being taxed at. Here is a link to that site. http://auditor.cuyahogacounty.us/repi/default.asp
With the decline in property values we have seen recently, any homeowners or buyers might be able to save some money on their taxes by filing for a correction of counties tax values.
Because of the limited window to file the requests (3/31/2009) I suggest that you look at the County valuations and it if is above what the current market justifies, file a request for reconsideration.
