Tax Assessment Appeals

FAQ – Should I file an Appeal?  You cannot file an appeal because you think your taxes are too high, but only if you think your assessment is too high. Your assessment should be no higher than the fair market value of your property, so before you decide to file an appeal you should know the value of your property on the current market, and be able to support that value using sales of comparable properties.  Below are links to a brochure with more information and to the appeal forms with instructions.
