How can I improve my appeal?
There are many things you can do to maximize the chances that your appeal will be successful. For a full discussion of these, please see the keys to a successful valuation appeal.
What if I missed the deadline to appeal?
If you missed the deadline to appeal your property, you may submit a Late Appeal Application (available September 16th to March 31st) with your appeal information. If your appeal is not accepted late, it will automatically be filed as a pre-appeal for the next appeal cycle.
Please note that the threshold to qualify for a late appeal is quite high. For example, a death in the family, or a dire medical emergency on the part of the property owner, and no other property owner was available to file the appeal. While other circumstances may be considered, they must be severe and significant.
In any case, the absolute deadline for filing a late appeal is:
- For Real Property and Mobile Homes: March 31st after the year being appealed
- For Personal Property: Late appeal not possible. Deadline is May 15th of the year being appealed.
- For Motor Vehicles: the previous notice (the one before the most recent)
What happens after I submit my appeal?
There are several steps in the process. For a detailed look at everything that could happen during the appeal process, please see the Appeal Process page.
