A home tax assessment is a survey and determination of the tax which can be collected from a particular property, residential in this case, after an analysis of the assets associated with the property. There are many scientific methods which are used by tax assessors to determine the tax rates that must be levied on a residential property. Similarly, a number of factors can affect the increase or decrease in property tax rates and these have to be specified as well.
