Appealing the 2020 Value of your Property:

Question:  With the temporary closure of the assessor’s office, will the thirty (30) calendar day timeline be extended to appeal the 2020 value of my real estate property?

Answer:  Regrettably, No.  State statute has no such provision to extend the timeline of 30 calendar days from the date that is printed on the valuation notice.

Although our office is temporarily closed due to possible exposure of the COVID-19 virus, our appraisal staff is working from home monitoring emails and phone messages.  The County is limiting public access to the Courthouse so we encourage the public to communicate via email or telephone voicemail.  You may also mail your appeal, along with supporting documentation, to the address listed on the property notice.  We will accept all appeals via the USPS with a postmark date of 30 calendar days or less from the date printed on the notice. 

When we are allowed to return to work, we will contact property owners in the order in which the appeal was received.  We will attempt to do as many as possible over the phone but we feel there is still adequate time to file your appeal at this time. 

If your notice date is:

·       March 10, 2020  -  your deadline for appeal is Thursday, April 9th

·       March 16, 2020  -  your deadline for appeal is Wednesday, April 15th

Question:  Can I appeal my 2020 value even if I didn’t receive an increase notice of value?

Answer:  Yes.  If there was no change in value or there was a decrease from last year, the deadline is the first Monday of April, which falls on Monday, April 6th, 2020.
