This is the last day to appeal your 2011 property appraisal and tax assessment to the Shelby County Board of Equalization. A successful appeal, resulting in a reduction of your appraisal, could get you more money than an IRS income tax refund.
The forms to serve notice that you intend to appeal can be picked up at the board's office on Mullins Station Road north of the Shelby County Penal Farm.
With a stagnant real estate market and plunging home values, you have nothing to lose. Your assessment, of course, determines both your city and county taxes.
