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 a Sales & Market comparable plus a Uniform & Equal Property comparison 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.

Pretty cool technology from "The Taxman”! Go to the welcome page to see an example of BTA's Appeal Summary package. 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! Come visit us today.
