The Assessor mails a notice of valuation to real property owners May 1 of each year. If a property owner believes the Assessor has incorrectly valued or classified the property, or that it was not valued fairly as compared to other properties, an appeal may be filed between May 1 and June 3. Use the form included with the notice of valuation for your appeal.
Timing is everything: It is better to appeal early in May. The last few days of the appeal period are often very busy and you may experience delays.
To appeal an assessment, you should explain why you believe the assessor's value is incorrect. By comparing your property to other similar properties that sold, you can determine whether your property has been fairly valued. The following is a list of resources that might help:
If you appeal, we will mail you a notice of determination by the last working day in August. This notice will show the assessor's office adjustment to value, if any, and explain how to appeal to the County Board of Equalization (county commissioners) if you are still dissatisfied. You must file your appeal to the County Board of Equalization (CBOE) should be filed by August 1. The CBOE meets July 1 through October 1. The board must conclude hearings by November 1, and notify petitioners of its decision within five business days.
If you wish to appeal a CBOE decision, you must do so within 30 days of the decision. Your options are described in the board's response.
