I was a business consultant and Entrepreneur for many years. During this time I had many attorneys and often felt that they certainly knew the law but often did not understand my business. About 8 years ago through my business efforts, I was in a place and time in my life where I could take some time off. I was always curious about the law and made the decision to attend law school. The first law practice I joined was not a fit for me. When I left I wanted to have a law firm that understood business and had a common sense approach to all forms of law The Affinity Law Firm was founded and immediately merged with the Law Office of Millie Kanyar. A strong partnership was formed that relied strongly on technology, business models, and an "affinity" for the law. In a short time another partner joined, Graham Syfert, and we have not stopped growing. Affinity Law now handles many types of law but has not forgot the basics that client service is number one. From the sound of our name you will find our approach to law refreshing. I hope that if you have read this far you will give us your enough trust to come in and see us and we will earn your trust. - Gust Sarris

How to Appeal Real Estate Tax Duval County Jacksonville Florida

What if I don't agree with my assessment / TRIM Notice?

If you live in Duval County, Jacksonville Florida, you must file your petition by September 13, 2010. If you do not file your petition, you will lose your right to have the assessment modified by the Value Adjustment Board. Below is a step-by-step process of what you must do if you wish to lower your property taxes. The steps below are to begin the appeal process only.

Information as to what you must present at the hearing is also contained on my blog at www. GustSarris.com or www.Affinity Law Firm.com. Last year, I represented 125 homeowners who disagreed with their property assessment. More than 40% had a decrease in the assessment value.



1. Immediately obtain a petition. The petitions are available in the property appraiser's office at City Hall at 117 W. Duval St., Room 305, Jacksonville, Florida. You will also find them online at http://www.coj.net/Departments/Property+Appraiser/Property+Appraiser+Online+Forms/default.htm Then choose Value Adjustment Board Petition Form - Real and Tangible Property, DR486 (pdf)



2. Complete the petition, along with a $15 check, and send this to the VAB office at City Hall, 117 W. Duval St., room 305, Jacksonville, Florida 32202.



3. You will be assigned a date and time. You may only move this once if you have good cause.



4. Either hire someone to help you with the appeal or read how to appeal in my blog. Good Luck!
