It is possible to correct an erroneous valuation through the abatement process for up to two prior years. The procedure is similar to an appeal to the Board of Equalization, but can take several months. Abatement Petition for Refund Form
The petition is directed to the Board of County Commissioners. The BCC instructions for abatement petitions follow on this page. We recommend that the petitioner attach supporting documentation. Values are based on data from the two year period ending June 30 of the year prior to the January 1 assessment date for each year for which abatement is sought. It is not necessary to fill in the values and tax amounts, if the petitioner does not know it. The law states that if the property value was already protested for the year(s) in question, no abatement or refund of taxes shall be made on grounds of overvaluation.
