How-to Protest Your Property Valuation 

With the super-hot home market, it is likely you are seeing an increase in your mortgage payments because the value of your home has increased. Why? Higher valuation of your property changes the amount of property taxes you owe, increasing your mortgage payment.

However, you can do something about it. You can protest your valuation June 1 to June 30, 2022.

Before you start

Search your property’s value and taxes in Douglas County, Neb., at www.douglascone.wgxtreme.com

Download the form at www.revenue.nebraska.gov/sites or www.boardofequalization.org

PROTEST TIP:  Did you know you can submit photos of your home when protesting your valuation? Take plenty of photos of your old kitchen and the dated bathroom that needs remodeling. These photos could help prove the value of your home and lower your property taxes.
