We recommend that you first contact the tax department personally. Often, they can help you right away so you won’t need to submit an objection. Send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Submitting an objection via a WOZ office is not necessary
If you are still not satisfied after having had personal contact, you can always still officially submit an objection. Submitting an objection is free of charge. We do not recommend that you submit an objection by way of a (no cure no pay) company. We can help you just as well and are happy to do so. The municipality is required to pay these firms a rather high disbursement if the objection is founded. This can easily run up to well over € 750 for each objection. You are eligible to receive this compensation. This way, the municipality incurs higher costs. These costs are included in determining the rate of real estate taxes for the next fiscal year. This causes the tax rates to go up and this will also then be reflected in your tax assessment. This is unfortunate and not necessary.
