If you don’t agree with the 2021 assessed value of your property that was decided by the Assessor's Office, you have an opportunity to appeal it. The appeal process begins with the Assessor's Review held during the first full two weeks in February. The City Charter requires an appeal to the Assessor's Review prior to any appeal to the local Board of Review.
The Assessor's Review is open during the first two full weeks of February, so the dates may change each year. For 2021, it will be open February 1st - February 12th.

The Board of Review will meet virtually on March 3rd, 2021 through March 19th, 2021, by appointment only. Virtual and/or telephonic appointments are scheduled by availability of the Board of Review and granted on a first come, first served basis. The Board will mail you a letter after the last day of their reviews to let you know their decision.
