Appeals Process

3 Steps in Appeal Process
  1. Appeal to the Office of Real Estate Valuation
  2. Appeal to the Board of Equalization
  3. File suit in Circuit Court
Overview
Talk with an appraiser from our office. During this informal session, you can learn how your assessment was made, what factors were considered, and what type of records are kept regarding your property. After this review, if you still think the assessment is incorrect, the next step is to file a formal appeal with our office. Please take the time to view and print the Real Estate Assessment Appeal Application (PDF).

Once this form is printed and completed, it must be received (with all supplemental documentation) by the Office of Real Estate Valuation on or before February 2, 2016. Once you have printed the form, if you wish to return to this page, just click the "X" button at the right side of the tool bar near the top of the page. Forms are also available in the Office of Real Estate Valuation and at your branch library or fire-EMS station.

Your appeal will be assigned to an appraiser from our office. To properly review the assessment, the appraiser will need to go through your property. During the inspection, you can provide any information you feel will be helpful in reviewing the assessment. After the review, you will receive written notification of the decision.
