Online Real Property Protest
The 2019 real property protest begins May 1, 2019 and runs through June 1, 2019. Properties that are appealed during our protest period will be reviewed and a Notice of Determination will be sent to those property owners on or before June 30, 2019. If the petitioner is satisfied with the value after this review, the process ends and the tax bill will be based on the value reflected in the Notice of Determination. If the petitioner disagrees with the Assessor's decision, the next step will be to file an appeal with the County Board of Equalization. More details are provided in the Notice of Determination sent June 30, 2019. If you filed a timely protest and did not receive a response by July 8th of that year, you should contact the assessor's office to verify it was received. It is recommended that you send by certified mail or submit online to retain proof of receipt.
If you did not submit a protest by the deadline, you may request an informal review after the end of June. It is recommended that you do so in writing. You may print and complete your online Notice and request a review. This notice includes details that would be helpful in reviewing your request. It is available here:
While you may contact the Assessor's office regarding your property any time throughout the year, properties that filed a formal protest are given priority. Many property corrections do not impact the property value for assessment purposes. If you feel your property is overvalued and you did not file an appeal you may petition for an abatement after you receive your tax bill.
