Your taxes are not calculated by an appraisal. Taxes are calculated by a mil rate/or some such formula ... the city determines its total yearly budget and then considers the total cities residential, commercial and industrial square footage. This square footage number is divided out and hence your tax rate determined. However, You definitely should take the time to complete an abatement form. If you have any other questions feel free to contact us anytime.
Would you mind if I include your question in my weekly Real Estate Column in the Gardner NEWS?
