Property Tax Protest

Consulting an experienced property tax advisor at Hancock & Dana may make the difference in reducing your real estate taxes. As one of the leading firms performing valuation protest services in Douglas and Sarpy County, our professionals efficiently guide taxpayers through the complexities of the Nebraska appeals process.
Hancock & Dana’s expertise has resulted in successfully reducing valuations for various property types, including:

  • Assisted Living Facilities

Many property owners fail to protest their property’s valuation because they don’t understand the complicated process, or may not have the resources to substantiate a claim their property is overvalued. Our experience representing a diverse range of properties provides us with the understanding necessary to effectively analyze your property’s value using one or more of the established valuation approaches.
In Nebraska, property value protests for the Douglas County Assessor and Sarpy County Assessor must be filed with the County Board of Equalization (BOE) between June 1st and June 30th of the year for which you are protesting. Determinations of protests are issued by the BOE during August. If you are still dissatisfied with your property’s valuation, you have the right to appeal the BOE’s decision to the Nebraska Tax Equalization and Review Commission (TERC) for further review.
 Hancock & Dana will act as a representative on your behalf. We will review your property valuation to determine if it’s reasonable, analyze market data to compare similar properties, recommend strategies for appealing the valuation, and successfully manage the various steps of the appeal process.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our Property Tax Protest services or would like us to evaluate your property.
