TaxProper

taxProper is a technology company that monitors property taxes and automatically appeals when its clients are overcharged by the county assessor.

TaxProper is a company that evaluates individual real estate value to decrease property tax payments. It was established by Geoff Segal and Thomas Dowling. The company is currently serving customers based in Cook County, Illinois. It is based in Chicago, Illinois, United States.

Service

TaxProper offers customers a way to reassess the value of their property in order to reduce the owed value of their home’s property tax. If homeowners feel that their property tax payment was higher to the actual value of the property, TaxProper would evaluate the data submitted for the county to determine whether the claim is true. This follow-up evaluation can be used as reference for up to three years of property tax payments. If the initial assessment made by the government was inaccurate to the actual property value, TaxProper would file a tax appeal on behalf of its customer. If the appeal is rejected, TaxProper would refund the cost incurred for its service. Any tax savings received by the customer when the appeal is approved will not be split with TaxProper.
