Important Documents to Bring to Your Tax Consulting Meeting

Property tax season is coming sooner than you think. If you’ve already hired a property tax consultant to help you fill out your property taxes or file for a reassessment, then they should have given you a list of things you need to bring for the consultant. However, in the off chance that they didn’t or maybe you’ve simply misplaced the list, then our tax experts are here to help. At the Hegwood Group, we know how the tax system works and we can save you money. Here are a few things you need to bring for your Dallas tax consultant.

Documents Detailing Any Repairs or Improvements

Hopefully, your business has kept careful records of any maintenance done to your building or office space. This information is pertinent to the value of your property and consequently, your property taxes. For example, if the plumbing in your building has been replaced, then documents detailing that improvement would be important to bring to your property tax consultant.

The Previous Year’s Appraisal

All around the country property taxes continue to rise, but in Dallas, residents and business owners alike are seeing them soar higher than they thought possible. Knowing what your property was valued at last year will help determine it’s value this year. Also, in the future, if there’s a reason to believe that a property assessor made a mistake on how much your property is valued at, then you can file for an appeal if the number is significantly higher than it was last year.

Any Correspondence From the County Appraisal Office

If you’ve had any emails or traditional forms of mail come to your desk from your city or county’s appraisal or tax offices, your tax consultant will want to have copies of it. Things like dates, fees, or other important factors included in notices or general information could be incredibly important to filing your property taxes or appealing them if it comes to that.
