Financial trouble due to high property tax bill

Q: The reason I am writing to you is because I received my property taxes today and it is more than $6,000. Coupled with my mortgage cost, I think I will not be able to afford my home this year. Could you guide me about it?

A: Given the decline in property values in many areas of the country, you may wish to consider appealing the tax assessment on your home. Most local tax jurisdictions (usually the county or parish where you live) have formal appeals processes in place. You'll want to contact your local tax authority to see what you need to do to get the process started. Also, if you are in imminent danger of not being able to make your mortgage payments, you may need to contact BofA to discuss a potential loan modification with them.
