Tools & Technology

Property tax hearing success can depend on evidence presented. Bettencourt Tax Advisors' Appeal Summary is a unique property analysis package that will show both Sales & Market comparables plus Uniform & Equal Property comparisons on a selected home or commercial property, as well as a graphical map showing where the subject and comparable properties are located. This proprietary program has a proven track record at informal and formal hearings as it shows evidence to fight appraisal district value increases.

For our customers who own Commercial Property, we also offer expanded GIS maps that provide geographical appraised values and other comparable information on the subject property and each surrounding property in a preselected area. It's impressive!
