The property taxes you pay are primarily based on your property's
assessed value as determined by the County Assessor. If you disagree
with value established by the Assessor, you can appeal that value to
the Assessment Appeals Board.
The Assessment Appeals Board conducts hearings on property
assessment disputes. Acting on the basis of relevant evidence
submitted at the hearing, it is their role to make a fair, impartial
decision on all property assessment disputes appealed, between
taxpayers and the Assessor. The Assessment Appeals Board is separate
and independent from the Assessor's Office.
For Fiscal Year 2017-2018, individuals and businesses seeking to
appeal their property tax assessments may do so between July 2,
2017 and November 30, 2017.
Need help filing an appeal or need information about your current
appeal? View the step-by-step guide
to understand the process when filing a property tax assessment
appeal. After viewing the step-by-step guide, complete and submit an
