About 1st Appeal

We help property owners to double check and appeal their property taxes.

1st Appeal is a service that enables property owners to double check and appeal their property taxes on their own by providing a custom property tax report that includes all the necessary information to challenge their property taxes successfully.

We believe that the process of appealing property taxes should not be complex or expensive, and all property owners should have the opportunity to double check their property taxes without incurring significant expenses.

Our mission is to equip property owners with the tools they need to appeal their property taxes or, at the very least, to verify their annual property taxes in just a few minutes, without the need for professional assistance.
