As the title suggest, this is Our site, the taxpayers. Information found here is generated by taxpayers and for taxpayers. This is a collaborative effort of volunteers from throughout the country. Our intent is to collect facts, data and experiences from persons of all backgrounds and in turn share this information with others. It is up to all of us to keep this site current. By working together, with our shared knowledge, we will be able to make a difference in our own property taxes.  But also, we will make a difference in the * nation's * property taxing system.

The most important asset of this site is the sharing of information. Many of us have some kind of experience with the system. You may have been a tax auditor, know or have been an assessor, seeked legal assistance with a tax issue, lost an appeal or won an appeal.  Everyone is encouraged to share their "story"  -- success or failure -- it doesn't matter.  We can all learn from each other.

| style="padding: 10px;" | [[Image:Pda.png|right]]There are over 6,000 different taxing communities in the United States. Each has different procedures and methods to determine assessments, enforce collections and file appeals.  
+
-
Generally, each State's legislature determines how taxes are regulated and directs each community to set their own tax rates. provide property assessments, review appeals and collect the taxes. This site is set up the same way. The home page provides links to each state; and each state's page links to each county. Information on the state pages is general for each state and the county pages provide specific information to each county. It is important that you review both your state and county page to obtain a complete understanding of your taxes.
