Appeal Procedure Rules & Regulations

‚ÄčTime for Filing

The deadline for filing an annual appeal is August 1st of any taxing year. Any appeal filed by that date will be scheduled before the Board of Assessment Revision. The final decision on assessed value will go into effect for the following assessment and taxing year. Any appeal notice received after the filing date, whether or not the same was mailed prior thereto, will be rejected as untimely for that appeal period.
Also, any property owner who receives an assessment change notice because of an interim increase, land splits, joinder deeds or because buildings have been removed has forty (40) days from the date of the notice to file an appeal with the Assessment Office.
