The general proposition that the core issue in any action challenging a tax assessment is the amount of the assessment, not the methodology utilized in arriving at the valuation. Homer v. Connecticut General Life Insurance Co., 213 So.2d 490 (Fla. 3d DCA 1968).

An appraiser may reach a correct result for the wrong reason. City National Bank v. Blake, 257 So.2d 264 (Fla. 3d DCA 1972).

Indeed, a taxpayer must carry a heavy burden in order to successfully challenge a property tax assessment. A tax assessment carries a strong presumption of validity and, in order to prevail, the taxpayer must present proof that excludes every hypothesis of a legal assessment. Blake v. Xerox Corp., 447 So.2d 1348 (Fla. 1984); Straughn v. Tuck, 354 So.2d 368 (Fla. 1977); Powell v. Kelly, 223 So.2d 305 (Fla. 1969).
