Taxes and levies imposed by municipalities can add up quickly, particularly when municipal property tax is involved. This tax is levied on your real estate’s value, which municipalities periodically assess pursuant to the Valuation of Immovable Property Act. A correct assessment, needless to say, is vitally important.
