In the realm of state and local governance, numerous avenues are employed to generate revenue. Among these, ad valorem taxes stand as a substantial source of income for various governmental entities. These property taxes are intrinsically linked to the value of real estate and personal property and are commonly recognized as ad valorem taxes.
Within many states, counties wield considerable authority not only to levy taxes on real property owners but also to influence the quantum of these taxes through the determination of property values. However, the assessed value assigned by the county may not consistently align with the actual value of real property, resulting in potential overpayment.
