Appeal process

We outline the steps for appealing information on your valuation notice.
Step 1

Apply online

Either you or your representative must complete and submit the appeal application before the Local Board meets. 

Before you start your application, be sure to review the list of information you'll need to apply.

Go to the application and the list of information

Step 2

Assessing staff review

An assessor will contact you to review your property value and classification.

This includes:

  • A review of your property characteristics
  • A review of recent sales for similar properties
  • A review of supporting documentation you provided with your appeal application
  • An onsite or virtual inspection of your home

The assessor will notify you of the final determination after review. 

If you and the assessor don't agree, you can continue your appeal before the Local Board.

Step 3

Local Board

There are three ways for a property owner to present to the Local Board of Appeal and Estimation (LBAE).

  • Attend the meeting and present your case
  • Have a representative present your case
  • Submit a written appeal by letter to the board

Local Board meeting agendas

  • The agendas will be posted prior to the meetings.
  • The agendas are posted to the Legislative Information Management System (LIMS).

Step 4

Local Board action

The Local Board will take one of these actions.

  • No change to the estimated market value or classification
  • Change to the classification
  • Reduction to the estimated market value
  • Increase to the estimated market value

Final action

  • The Board sends its decision to you in the mail.
  • This is the end of the local appeal process.
