The assessment schedule or notice of value mailed by the Assessor's Office contains the following items:
Estimated fair market value
Estimated property taxes
Legal description of the property
Previous year's values
Pay Attention to the Market Value
When the property owner receives the assessment schedule, it should be opened immediately and reviewed. It is most important to pay attention to the market value. The property owner needs to make sure it represents what the property would have been worth had it sold on January 1. If the value is within reason and no other errors are noted on the assessment schedule, further action is not required.
Appealing Your Property Value
However, if you disagree with the value, come in to the Assessor's Office as soon as possible to initiate the review process. Remember - there is only a 30-day period in which to appeal your property value.
