The Hillsborough County Property Appraiser comes on the show to discuss the inner workings of valuation. While the discussion is specific to Hillsborough County, the laws are applied across the State in a similar fashion. We cover how assessors arrive at their valuations, some of the rights property owners have and what you can do to contest a valuation if you don't agree.
