Appeal Your Property TaxesLiving in San Mateo County just minutes from San Francisco has been a great opportunity for those of us who purchased our homes and watched the values grow significantly over the years. Others were not so lucky and saw smaller increases in home values, only to lose that value with the recent state of the economy and the downward trend in real estate. Homeowners now have to face the fact that their homes are not worth as much as they once were. Most are still paying the high property taxes based on the higher levels. Isn't it time that San Mateo County re-evaluated those property taxes and lowered them to a more reasonable amount. I know that other counties have done the research and lowered property taxes significantly. We live in an affluent area and have always paid the price to be here. It is time that homeowners complain to the local tax board and get lower property taxes.November 02 2008 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
