How does the referral program work?

You can invite friends and neighbors to sign up for Ownwell by sharing your personalized referral code with them! You can find your referral code in your portal at the bottom right of any property overview page or in your account settings. After your friend signs up and is verified as the property owner, you'll see a 20 reward as a referral credit on your account. Your friend who signed up will also earn a $20 referral credit.

How is your fee calculated?

Our fee is applied to actual property tax savings in the year we appeal. For instance, if our fee is 25% and your property tax bill is reduced from $5,000 to $4,000 our fee will be applied to the $1,000 difference. In this case, the final invoice amount would be $250. You can find pricing for your region here.

How are tax exemptions taken into account?

Our contingency fee is applied to actual property tax savings in the year we appeal. If you have an active homestead exemption, over 65 exemption, or any other tax exemption applied to your property, we will adjust your final fee by the appropriate discounted amount. You won't be charged unless your final property tax bill is actually reduced, and we have a signed document from your taxing authority to prove it.

How are property taxes calculated?

Each year, the county tax assessor generates an estimated market value and an "assessed value" for each property. These values form the base value (“basis”) upon which the property is taxed. The basis is multiplied by the tax rate for your specific tax jurisdictions to calculate the property tax bill.

Is there any risk to my property by signing up?

There is no risk to signing up a property to protest or appeal in Texas, California, New York and Florida. In Washington and Georgia it is possible that a property's taxable value can increase, however we review all relevant market data before filing. If we think there is any risk then we will inform you that we are not filing. It's still important to review your property taxes each year to ensure you're only ever paying what's fair.
