How can I appeal my valuation?

Pursuant to state statute, tax appeals must be filed in writing with the tax assessor within 185 days of the commitment of the taxes. The filing deadline for the city's current FY2022 tax year is 185 days from the date of commitment which was September 7, 2021. The appeal deadline, therefore, is March 11, 2022. Tax appeals must be based upon a claim of over valuation of the property, not upon the amount of the tax bill. A taxpayer may only appeal the current assessed value stated on the tax bill. An application is required to be submitted and can be found here.
