Growing up in the 5T, the only place I ever had my hair cut was by Sal (at 'Your Salon', across from Seasons).

I filled out the online form and wasn't very hard but I didn't get any decrease in the assessment but then again I didn't get an increase either.

From my understanding, that's pretty common. I guess I should rephrase my question to:
Anyone every get their property tax reassessed by themselves and had their taxes lowered? is it hard to do?

IME it is like going to traffic court and fighting a ticket yourself instead of hiring a lawyer. You may get lucky but usually you get what you pay for. The different firms know the system better than any one person ever could. They practically created the industry.
