Every year the Board of Tax Assessors mails out notices of value to each property owner. Upon receipt of this notice, the property owner desiring to appeal the value must do so within 45 days of the date of the notice. The appeal is filed with the Board of Tax Assessors which reviews the appeal filed and informs the taxpayer of its decision. If the Board of Tax Assessors makes no changes, the appeal is automatically forwarded to the County Board of Equalization. The Board of Equalization will schedule a hearing and render a decision at the conclusion of its hearing. If the taxpayer is still dissatisfied with the decision, an appeal to Superior Court may be made.
During the appeal filing period, appeals can be filed online using the Property Search link. To access our appeals portal, you must first locate your property. You can search by owner name, location address or parcel number (recommended option). Your parcel number is the Property ID Number found on your assessment notice.
A standard appeal form is available on this website or you may simply write a letter telling us that you are appealing, indicate your value along with an appeal route choice, and if possible, explain why you disagree with our value. Your letter must include the street address of your property and the Parcel ID Number. We would also like an email address and a daytime phone number to contact you.
We cannot accept appeals by fax. Please be sure to appeal online, hand deliver or mail your appeal (POSTMARKED BY THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE) by the last day of the appeal period.
