Subject: Property tax assessment appeal letter
I am penning this letter in reference to the property tax assessment form that was sent by your bank to me on 08th November, 2014. I appeal from you to please provide me with the tax assessment of the following property: Flat no.25, Second Floor, Richmond Apartments, Part Avenue Street, Buckingham.
After undergoing my property record and worksheet, I came across few discrepancies in the tax assessment which are as follows:
a) As mentioned in the worksheet, I own 1,200 sq feet of living area but in reality I just own 1,000 sq feet of living area.
b) It is mentioned in the worksheet that I possess a fireplace but that fireplace does not belong to me.
I would also like to underline the following comparisons through this property tax assessment appeal letter:
c) The comparable property which is located at flat number 22 has the same characteristics but there is a vast difference in the value of tax assessments. The assessed taxes of my property have higher values compared to that of the flat number 22.
