Do you check yours?
Have you ever contested it?
For my NetWorth post a few days ago I went to my cities website and did a search for our tax assessment - pretty quick and easy! In looking at the details of the page, it indicates the square footage, if the basement is developed, if there is a fireplace and if their is a garage.
All of our details were correct...except for the garage. It says we have one, we don't. I called in to let them know, and the person I spoke to was amazing. Very helpful! She made the change right away.
Today, I got a letter in the mail that said my monthly tax payment has been reduced from $189.36 to $183.38 until Mail, 2012 - a savings of $29.90.
Not too shabby for a 10 minute phone conversation.
