City Hall – Finance Conference Room
Notice is hereby given that the July Board of Review will be meeting on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 at 9:00AM in the Finance Conference Room to make decisions on clerical errors, mutual mistakes of fact, homestead status and poverty exemptions as required by statute. Pursuant to Executive Order 20-87, the July Board of Review may also hear valuation appeals and personal property exemptions.
Notices of annual changes in property tax assessments are mailed to all residents each year in February. Residents who wish to appeal the assessed or taxable value of their property by the Assessors Office may do so to the local Board of Review. The Board of Review meets annually during the second week of March.
Residents may appeal in person, by scheduling an appointment with the Assessor's Office or by letter. Letters must be received before the last day of the scheduled Board of Review meetings. Residents who appeal their values will need to provide market evidence if they believe that the assessment on the home is excessive. Residents may also appeal to the Board of Review if the taxes levied against their property create a financial hardship. To appeal based on hardship, you must complete and submit the City’s Application For Property Tax Relief, found below, to the Assessor's Office.
