Assessment Challenge Information
Informal Assessment Review
Informal Review Applications are accepted June 1 to November 1, 2015
The Assessor’s Office will continue to offer property owners an Informal Review Process. If you feel your assessment is incorrect then you must provide the Assessor with reasonable information, based on market sales, that supports your opinion of market value.
In comparing similar sales, it is important to remember that location, style, age and size are critical to the comparison process. For example: if you purchased your home for $80,000 on a particular street or neighborhood DO NOT look for homes that sell for $150,000 in other neighborhoods or compare a 5 year old house with a 50 year old house. BE REALISTIC AND HONEST.
